Head coach of "Rostov" Oleg Protasov commented on the game his team in a friendly match with the "Anorthosis", which ended with the score 3-1 in favor of the club from Cyprus.
"Although not the most pleasant due to the results of the meeting, I was generally satisfied with the way the guys have shown themselves, given against the background of what took place loads for us this game. Today, at a general meeting, I thank them for their dedication. This sparring we did not put the result at the forefront, especially in front of the players were challenged to go all out on the field. The emphasis was on the attack, and I can say that such a large number of scoring chances we have not created, but, unfortunately, there is a lot of work to implement. I am glad that in this game we were able to see the good development of our offensive operations.
All three goals we conceded from set pieces. The first goal was scored from the penalty, by the way, it was probably the first blow to our opponents goal. In the second half we conceded a goal after a corner, and then we scored from the penalty spot. All of these points, we will carefully review and study. After a break on the field was a good fight, guys wound up, and despite the fatigue, fought to the end.
Rival — mobile, mobile, organized team. But the difference in class is still felt. We forget it 1-2 goals in the beginning of the meeting, it is possible that in the second half and did not experience any serious problems. "Rostov" deserved to win this game, "- quoted by the official website of the club coach.
