The forward of the Astana team Roman Murtazayev shared his vision about the match, fans and immediate plans:
- We conceded three goals, tried to play to keep the score, but in the end it did not work out. Nobody to blame, it’s our fault! We need to move on.
- Today a group of Kazakhstani fans attended the stadium. Did you feel their support?
- Of course, we felt the support of both the fans at the stadium and those who were watching TV at home. We let them down, it is unpleasant. It’s a shame, but now we need to work even more to find a way out of this situation.
- Will the team be able to recover, given the long flight ahead to Nur-Sultan, and then almost immediately to Andorra?
- I think that 5 days is enough. We have nowhere to retreat, now every mistake is worth its weight in gold.
