Defender of the Ukrainian national team Oleksandr Syrota shared his impressions of the friendly match against Rijeka (draw 1:1):
“For me, it’s generally a game in a new position, left back. It was a bit difficult as this is the first time in a new position. I liked the game, but I think that it was necessary to win. Rijeka is a good team. They are in the top 5 of the Croatian championship, so this is a good sparring.
It was a little hard, because the road was hard for us, we just arrived. But that’s okay, it’s football. We are professionals, we must prove every day that we are not in vain here.”
