Sergei Labodovskiy: «We stuck to our plan»
Sergei Labodovskiy, Kairat U-19:
- The game was as tough as it was in Tbilisi. Maybe it was even more tough. We faced very strong opposition, who control the ball well. We were aware and ready that they will try to open the score from the beginning, and unfortunately they succeeded. Sometimes we were lucky today, they hit the post couple of times. But when we levelled, the game has changed completely, we had the most of the possession. We got the result and that is the most important.
- How did you feel when you had serious problems in defence and Dinamo was close double the lead.
- I felt nervous about the result and after we conceded I saw players' heads went down and they started panicking. We made a lot of mistakes and were losing the ball doing simple things. Dinamo players were inspird after the first goal and as we have seen it is a great team who are superb on the ball, fast, with good technique abilities. They were better than us at controlling the ball today - but football is not only about possession, but defensive play as well. We chose right tactics, started from the back and were trying to catch them on the counter-attacks. We knew that we could score on the counter as had good selection of players. We stuck to our plan. Probably after today's game I have even more grey hair.
