On November 18, the match of the 9th round of the Euro 2024 qualifying stage in Group D took place between the national teams of Armenia and Wales. The game ended with the score 1:1.
After the end of the match, the hosts’ mentor Alexander Petrakov commented on the draw result in the match:
“Today we again lacked skill. I’m really sorry we had an own goal. After the game, Nair Tiknizyan came up to me and compared his own goal with Yarmolenko’s own goal in the Ukrainian national team. I told him that you can’t compare yourself to others.
Everything is already in the past. We need to look forward and prepare for the match with Croatia. The guys did everything right. There was a great desire, but there was an own goal.
The Armenian team has already started playing compact football. At the pre-match press conference I said that we would not play open football, but in the second half we had to do it.
We are preparing for the match with Croatia. We have a very strong opponent ahead.
Football players need to train a lot, conduct individual training in their clubs. Everyone must understand that the national team is the face of the country. Everyone should love their national team, train individually in their clubs, and then join the national team.
I would like to express special gratitude to the Armenian fans who always support us,” said Alexander Petrakov.
