—Is it worth being upset about the match?
?

— Not really. We controlled the the game, created a lot of chances. It's possible that we scored all of our goals the other day and today we couldn't, but we had a good number of chances in the first half and in the second half as well. Yes, we gave up a goal off of our own mistake, but we received some good information too. The team moved well and demonstrated their physical fitness for the entire 90 minutes. So we aren't happy about the result, but in general the work at camp has been satisfactory. These sorts of things happen when you are getting ready for the season. Tomorrow we have two practices and then another game soon enough.

— This is the second game in a row that the team has been playing 4-3-3 with one holding midfielder. Can we draw the conclusion that this is going to be a foundational lineup? ?
— We are trying some new things, so we will see. We generally play 4-3-2-1, but we made the decision to play like this. This can mean that we are going to use it, but it can also mean that we are going to use a different system as well. One way or another, it's important for the players to feel comfortable within the system.

— What happened with Vyacheslav Malafeev??
— It's tough to say right now, we have to look into it. For Slava, it's already his second injury at camp. At first there was a muscle problem, now it's his knee. He's feeling some strong discomfort. So we will see. The medics are going to check everything and we are going to work off the results.

—Did you expect that «Al Wakrah» would be that strong?
— They were good on the counterattacks, but you saw that we created about 40-50 chances. In a normal situation if we were a bit more lucky, this wouldn't have happened. But that's football: they created two chances and scored. So we can only congratulate them!

— Hulk received another yellow card for his behavior. How do you handle those kinds of situations?
— It's a game time situation and football is built from emotions. So, sometimes someone can get a little disappointed.

—The team had a half a day break yesterday. Did the coaches get to relax too?
?
— We went to the World Cup of handball yesterday. A match between Spain and Brazil, and that's it. Then we went back to preparing for everything. Our goal is apparent to everything: we should come our first official match entirely ready for it, and that's what we are all working towards. ";s:4:"TYPE";s:4:"HTML";}
