I don’t want to judge the refereeing, honestly! Because there were cases when I was asked-asked, and then had to say, I will not evaluate. There are experts, let them do it.

We were going to at least not miss. Understood that the chances of a miner will be a lot, but still tried to make a “zero”. Ahead and relied on quick counterattacks and standard positions. But we were missing some players. Worked on standards for training, after all, with such a rival, it was necessary to squeeze the maximum. Unfortunately, nothing happened. Although the tension was maintained until the end of the meeting where, risked, after all, played the second half with two forwards, but still chances at the gate of the miner did not have”, – quotes Vladimir Sharan official website of the miner.
