After match comments

Head coach of the team Belarus Alexei Vergeenko:

– That's good that everything is over now. I'm very satisfied with our bronze medals. This victory and our 3rd place we dedicate to a very respectable person – the President of the Administration of the football club "BATE" – Anatoly Kapsky. Not so long ago he bore a serous surgery so we wish him good health! What's about the today's game, I will say the following thing: "The silver is given for those who lose and the bronze – for those who win!" That's good that we finish the tournament in a positive mood. Though, for sure we have some problems and things to work with. There are those who need to change their character – it's too early that they started considering themselves celebrities. But we will make conclusions after coming home! Thanks to the organizers for the Tournament!

Senior coach of the team Lithuania Mindaugas Neoras:

– I'm also very satisfied with the result and with the game. You know, this tournament reminded me of the old USSR Championship – so many teams from the former Soviet republics. Starting this Tournament we couldn't even dream that we would get into the semifinal. As we say, the appetite comes while eating. Today my players came on the pitch being confident, their actions were logical and tactically right. We were not afraid of such a serious opponent as the team of Belarus. What's more, to my opinion, this squad of our team is the strongest within the last few years. The guys really play on the pitch and not only fight or just run without a thought. So, in spite of our losing the game, we have mostly positive emotions. Special thanks to the organizers of the tournament. Competitions of such a level are not easy to be held. Not everybody will manage it! You've organized everything on the highest level! Thanks!
