After today's match between Azerbaijan and Zambia to be played within UEFA Development Tournament in Georgia, head coach of Azerbaijan U-17 team Elkhan Abdullayev commented the match:
“Unfortunately, we couldn't play the way we wanted”
“We played against a good opponent. Unfortunately, we couldn't play the way we wanted. The reason was that the opponent put a lot of pressure on us. It was the first time that our team played against an African team. This is an experience for our young players. The tournament is not over yet, we have a game against the Georgian team ahead. Our main task is to prepare for the European Championship qualifying round. We gain great experience by holding such international games. Zambia is a physically strong team and they deserved to win this match.”
