Head coach of Turkish team Uchar Feyyaz:
- All the matches were turned for us quite well. My players showed a high quality football. In general, we have a lot of young talents at home. It is important to make them to be a team. Personally for me, results in numerous tournaments are the most important thing in it. Our main aim is to train sportsmen of the first national team. We learn during tournaments like Granatkin's Memorial.
Head coach of Russia team Vladimir Sherbak:
-Perhaps this is the best match we have played in this tournament. I would describe this match as a match of unrealized opportunities. We played with strong team, not using scoring moments. Surely I wanted to win the match and the tournament at all, but I would not make a tragedy of loss. There are a lot of competitions ahead and our task is not to win but search for young talents. By the way, due to the team of China not coming for some reasons St. Petersburg team had an opportunity to take part in Granatkin Memorial. That youth team has some talented players we already noticed for Russian team.
