Shakhtar vs Vorskla: player comments
Players of the Donetsk team have reflected on the match with Vorskla.
Eduardo, Shakhtar forward:
- The most important thing is that we won today. Unfortunately, this has happened only in the second half, and Shakhtar are used to scoring quickly and wrap the game up in the first 45 minutes. We prepared for the fact that Poltava would play aggressively. When out on the field, I am thinking about the victory of the whole team, not about personal things. But, of course, I am glad to have scored! This game is much different from the meeting in the Ukrainian Cup. Vorskla defended well, so that our victory was very hard. On the eve of the game, we watched our cup match, with taking into account the mistakes that were made last time. Our team are in a good form, today we proved it. Now we will prepare for the meeting with Anderlecht.
Bernard, Shakhtar midfielder:
- I am very happy to be on the field to show my game. Although I still need some time to fully recover and gain the optimal shape. No matter how hard it was to get a victory, the main thing is that we have managed to get three points to make another step forward. Football is also interesting, given that every game can be such a Pandora's box itself. Vorskla learned how we played with them in the Ukrainian Cup and made certain conclusions. Today they have shown quite a different game, which has brought us problems. It seems that this time we have met with another team because they have not made errors they have made in the previous game. Mister is now making some changes and it's a right thing! Teixeira’s departure is a big loss for the team. He was an important part of our team. But now everyone can try a new role and feel where it’s more comfortable to play.
