After match comments
Head coach of the team Turkey Hakan Tecimer:
– I would like to thank the team of Kazakhstan for the game. They were playing in their own style and tried to keep us at a distance. Apart from that, I don't want to give any comments about the game quality of my team and the match in general.
Head coach of the team Kazakhstan Mihail Soloviev:
– I congratulate the team of Turkey with the victory; I think they just were unlucky in previous matches. I considered Turkey the leader of the group before the tournament started. We played good with a strong opponent. I believe the first half was good; in the second, we managed to score a goal sfter the substitutions, but we lacked energy. At training we make good free kicks, but we fail to realise it in the game. It can be a matter of phsychics. The guys are tired after the matches we've played. They have a striving and come to the field in a good mood, but they lack energy to carry out the whole game as it was planned.
