After match comments:

Head coach of the team Kyrgyzstan Anarbek Ornmonbekov:

– The match was very difficult for us. It's very hard for the team of Kyrgyzia to play against the opponents of such a level. So, the game plan was simple: not to let in. We executed it, even not because of our skills, but probably due to the amount: maximum of our players worked in the defense. Only one forward was always ready to create the counterattack. Russia's guys are experienced, but we managed to restrain their forwards. We even got the chance to score. It isn't nesserary to dispose players to play against the Russian team. So, my guys were playing with the very strong desire, and neither experience, nor physical conditions were important. Sometimes we were changing the speed of the game, making little pauses, to let some players respire. It's not the tightening of time, though that tactics also can be applied, when the goal is not to let in.

Senior coach of the team Russia Nikolay Pisarev:

– This game was the most boring of all. It was obvious by the actions and emotions that players had no wish to play. What's more, I'm talking about our opponent. They were doing all their best to finish the match with the draw. They were killing the clock and as the result we played 30 % of the match time less, that's incredible. Well, they've achieved their goal. What's about substitutions, I can say that none of them could strengthen the game, though, I don't want to talk about anybody personally, but I can admit that the team played worse than they could.
