Victory in today's match with Finland (7:4) led our team to the semi-finals. The comment of the head coach of the Ukrainian youth team, Ihor Moskvychev, after the match with Suomi is suggestive the Futsal Association of Ukraine press-service reports,.

— Igor Yevhenovich, congratulations on your victory and entry into the semi-finals. What can you say about the game?

- Thanks for the welcome. In terms of the game, we dominated the opponent from the first seconds, created many opportunities, and scored many shots on goal. That's why I think we deserved to win today. The only difficulties in the first half were in the 5x4 game. We analyzed this moment in the game of the Finnish national team. Unfortunately, they missed the third ball before the break, it was optional. In the second half, we regrouped, and there were no such problems against the Finns' game with a fifth field, although they played with five already from the 5th minute of the second half.

I am very satisfied with the performance of my team in the group stage. We played well in all three matches, we came to this tournament in good physical, psychological and tactical shape. We will analyze the moments with missed balls, because they were identical. The success of the Finnish national team arose only from our standards. Therefore, let's analyze this moment and find out why we missed three goals from the "five". We didn't score goals and actually gave them away to our opponents. Accordingly, those goals that were missed were presented.

— I got the impression that a quick goal in the second half greatly influenced the further course of events...

— Our tactics were aimed at this, in order to add pressure on the opponent's goal from the first minutes. So the goal is natural, we hoped for it, and we did everything as it should.
