Fonseca: Vorskla created a lot of difficulties for us

Shakhtar’s mentor noted that the substitutions helped the team to beat Vorskla.

Shakhtar Donetsk head coach Paulo Fonseca commented on the team’s victory over Vorskla.

“Tough game, but we deserved to win. Great start . In the only moment when we were not concentrated, we got a goal that no one expected. Nevertheless, the first half was great: very intense, with a lot of chances to score.

We left for the break when the score was 2: 1, which, in principle, did not deserve. The second half also started quite well: Shakhtar demonstrated the same pace and intensity. Unfortunately, again one moment of inattention – and 2: 2. Of course, it made things more difficult. Our team did not immediately react, but after the substitutions were made, they were able to find themselves again. As a result, we defeated a good opponent who created many difficulties for us.

It’s always difficult after a pause for international matches. First, because, thank God, we have many in the national team. There are very few footballers in training. The guys come literally before Shakhtar’s next game. For example, Fred us do not even engaged – has arrived, and we immediately went to Kharkov. It is very difficult to gather strength after the break for the national teams, “said Fonseca.

Let us remind you that Shakhtar beat Vorskla in the match of the 12th round of the Ukrainian championship.
