Ukraine coach commented on the victory over Kosovo in the selection of the 2018 world Cup.

The head coach of the national team of Ukraine Andriy Shevchenko after the victory over the Kosovo noted the difficult conditions of the match, but was pleased with the victory.

“It was a very tough game for us. It is difficult to disagree with the words of Sergei Sidorov, who before the game said that Kosovo is one of the strongest teams in the sixth of the basket. We played under very adverse weather conditions, when rain comes first, then interrupted, and then the downpour begins. It is difficult to control the ball on the field, it is difficult to give accurate transmission. The main thing was to get three points and we have accomplished this task.

For our team, the weather conditions were disastrous, well done guys. We found it hard to play football, believed to the end and achieved victory. Regardless of the opponent, on these fields I’ve ever played – very difficult.

Come to Kiev, we are waiting for heavy moving and flights. Among the good news Rakitskiy will join the team on Saturday, look at it, it will strengthen. About the upcoming game – we will see, for example, today Garmash and Yarmolenko rebuilt, steel extended forwards, plus we have Besedin” – quoted Shevchenko official website of the FFU.

We will remind, the Ukrainian team claimed a hard victory over Kosovo. Read what I wrote after the match on social media.
