- You had an injury. You decided to play with the Armenians because of the pain ...
- We had an agreement with the head coach that I will play the last match on June 11. But on the eve of the game with Ireland, I received an unpleasant injury, after which the doctor said that I needed a break of three weeks. I asked if I could play one match. He said that if I injected painkillers for two or three days, I could.
- Did your knee bother you during the game?
- Our doctors are magicians. They put me on my feet. Now I will have a break during which I will be able to heal my knee.
- Our team could not score in the first half, but showed character.
- Armenians acted more on counterattacks, defended very well. It's like Shakhtar and Dynamo in the Ukrainian championship, when the whole team of rivals is near someone else's penalty area. Therefore, it was necessary to score the first goal. It's good that the guys came out and scored in the second half. The game went a little bit in a different direction, that's why such a score.
- I couldn't do without your branded saves.
- Zabarny and I agreed - he cuts, and I fight back (laughs).
- What do you wish the guys who will continue the work started with you?
- I am now their fan. The next game is with Ireland, I will be in front of the screen, I will support the guys. Only victory, only forward!
