Reserves: FC Anzhi 0-3 FC Rubin
FC Rubin reserves boss Roman Sharonov shares his postmatch impressions
- We played two different halves. In the first half we were quite good, so we dominated, got hold of the ball and scored goals. We did well a set piece, then there was a good attack from the wing with a solo run from Karimov. There were another situations in the first half where we should have been more aggressive when finishing. In terms of defence, we coped with their transitions when they used long balls
Unfortunately, my half time warning came true as we didn't play properly in the second half and would send too many long balls. So I was not satisfied with the quality of our play in the second half despite the third goal we scored. Also, not all the players who came on as substitutes came on well.
I would like to highligh Soslan Dzhanaev's performance today. He is a true professional. It was a great experience for my players to play with him as he helped them a lot and guided them
