A little more than 50 is, of course, not enough. Very weak.

We need confidence – we are starting to pour a team, we do not have a leader. Everyone understands everything perfectly, both experienced and not. We can’t get together in a difficult moment, although sometimes we got – as it was in the first half, but then removed – and fell.
The Swedes were good, and at some point we looked just helpless. Besides, how to throw from a place, often didn’t find », – the correspondent of« Championship quotes Alekseev.
