Andriy Shevchenko: Team is waiting for a difficult game, but we need only a victory
On the eve of the World Cup 2018 qualifying match between the national teams of Finland and Ukraine was held a pre-match press conference of Ukraine head coach Andriy Shevchenko.
«The team is fine, we had a good training camp. The only problem we have at the moment is Petryak’s absence that has fallen out of tomorrow’s game through toothache. He was treated, but, most likely, he wouldn’t be ready for the match.
We respect the Finnish team, as all the other teams that are in our group. This would be a matter of prestige for Finland, yet they play at home, so they will try to perform well. They feel no pressure on themselves in the standings. We have completely different goals. We came here for a victory. All the guys are thinking about this, so it's important for us to have a good match and win it.
I think everyone has learned a lesson from the friendly match against Malta. It is necessary to make certain efforts, if you want to win. We analyzed this game, looked at our mistakes. The main thing is for the guys to understand that tomorrow we will have a difficult game and we need a result in it.Print version
