Training camp in USA: anticipating first match

On 14 January, as on the previous day, Shakhtar chose the beach on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico for their morning training session. The Pitmen spent a little over an hour on the sand to prepare for the first match in the international tournament Florida Cup, which will take place Sunday, 17 January.

- A very good tournament. I know that it will be broadcast in many countries. Our games will be watched by millions of people. We must prove ourselves well. For us, it is an extra motivation. We will try to win and show a good game, - Shakhtar’s midfielder Maksym Malyshev said.

Today’s training programme again included the work with the ball that alternated with jogging and aerobic work on the sand.
