Ruslan Agalarov: "I was glad to watch the first half"

Руслан Агаларов: «Порадовал первый тайм»

During training camp in Turkey Anji youth team played a draw against their age mates from Samara.

Anji (youth) – Kr. Sovetov (youth) – 2:2 (1:1);

Goals: Koroman, 12 (0:1), Umarov, 44 (1:1), Musalov, 65 (2:1), Vasiliev, 74 (2:2).

The youth team manager Ruslan Agalarov speaks about it in detail:

-      We continue alternating practices with friendlies. At this, we still have 2 workouts per day.

We fielded two different squads in the match vs Kr. Sovetov (in each half). I was glad to watch the first half. It was of a high standard, had a sense and execution of what we trained at the practices. In general, some players obviously advance and make progress. I wouldn`t give concrete names exceptionally for the purpose of their benefit.

As to the second half, I`m rather dissatisfied with it. There was not that quality of play that we wished to see. Of course, the boys did their best but they obviously lacked experience and strength. Though, it should be noted that the second half was participated by the players born in 1995, 1996 and even 1997.

We go on working – train, hold theoretical practices, analyze mistakes in a game and keep hope that this work will bear fruit.
