Anton Zabolotny: Thanks to the fans, we heard you
— During the pre-game day there were misunderstandings: it seemed that a vacation was announced, we thought that we can relax, plan the next day, be with the family. The news came in the evening that we need to get ready and play. It turned out to be a good match, but the weather conditions were difficult. The most important thing is victory.
— How does it feel to play when it is cold even in a coat?
— To be honest, it is very hard. It is necessary to use the equipment correctly, trousers do not help much, there should be no sweaters under the T-shirt. The wind blew strongly, you can see by my face that I am all red as I entered the room (laughs). Every football player picks himself up and use the power that has been accumulating all year, running on fumes. We turned out to be stronger, thanks to the team, the fans, the guys who came to support us from the VIP stand — we heard them.
— At what minute did you realize that you no longer feel the body?
— Around the fifteenth.
— The commentators said that your goal is from the repertoire of Giroud, Ibrahimovic, Haaland…
— Yes, the goal turned out to be beautiful. Ilza made a good pass, it turned out to be fun - to shoot into the goal in this style. To be honest, I think it is them who score in my style, not me in theirs (laughs).
— How would you assess this part of the season?
— As a very productive. I do not look at the standings. We failed a little bit at the end, but we scored six necessary points in the last two rounds. We need to have a good rest, then we have two months to prepare, everything will be decided in the spring.
