Shakhtar U14 to play in the final

Thursday, June 23, 2016



Shakhtar U14 finished their DUFL finals group stage campaign. The Donetsk side claimed the top spot in Group B and reached the competition final, where on June 24 they are to play Dynamo Kyiv

In the first game of the subgroup against Chornomorets Odesa, the Orange-Blacks failed to keep the winning score. The meeting ended in a 1-1 draw. The goal for our team was scored by Abdullayev.

In the second round, Shakhtar demolished UFC-Karpaty Lviv 3-0. Abdullayev, Shysh and Kobylianskyi (penalty) got their names on the scoresheet.

In the closing meeting, the Pitmen came from behind in a 2-1 win at Piddubnyi OC Kyiv (Shysh - 2).

- We are happy with the fact that we have managed to reach the final, - said Shakhtar U14 coach Andriy Zabolotnyi. - Of course, there are certain issues in terms of the performance, because we know that the guys can prove themselves even better, as they have potential for that. But the errors can be explained by their excitement. They didn’t always manage to cope with that nervous tension. I would mention as a strong point the players’ set play: we scored all the goals after playing those set pieces. Now we are facing a tough game against Dynamo, so we will get prepared for it.
