FC Rubin Fedor Kudryashov shares his impressions from today's 1-0 victory against FC Ural Yekaterinburg
- It was a hard-earned victory, wasn't it?
- We played really well in the first half until we scored, then we gave up the initiative and in the second half we played to protect the score. It was very important to win today, all of us understood the importance of today's points and thanks God we won the game.
- How do you feel ahead of the National team camp?
- I had not played for almost a month, it was tough today. Thanks to the coaching staff, who lined me up and actually I coped with 90 minutes.
- Was Ural's performance any surprise today?
- No, they played just the way our coaching staff expected with many crosses and aerial duels. We were prepared and I think our centre-backs coped with that, in general.
- Does that mean that the team gave up the initiative on purpose? So it was not Ural's credit, was it?
- Maybe we did it subconsciously for we understood the importance of today's victory.
