Nicholas Kocheshkov, head coach of the Russian team:

– It was difficult to match. We fought and rival, and a judge. Was very rough play by the enemy, but the referee tried to ignore missteps tournament hosts. I can say that was a real battle, because Ukraine does not want to lose. At first everything went well for us. In the first time were able to implement two chances to score, but then missed. In the second half, have a significant advantage in the long run, with whom he finished the match – 4:1.

Summing up the event, I can say that the team is really well prepared, but the most important thing – the girls eyes were burning, they all wanted to win. I would also like to thank all of our coaching staff for the preparation of the team. This is their victory!

    Yes, Iran WNT is good, right. Football is very popular amongst young girls overthere. They had to fight hard to play but – even pore – to have the right to go to stadiums and watch Men’s matches which are forbidden to them, in spite of help by President . I advise you the wonderful film “Off-Side” by Jafar Panahi. I have no doubt you’ll all love it.

    Why U-17 Iran in this tournament with Russia, Ukraine and Belarus ? Maybe only because those countries won’t make a fuss about young girls playing with hidjabs which is allowed by Fifa only since last month. But several countries – including France -have already announced that girls won’t be allowed to wear it when playing.

    I’m very happy to know that those girls, football’s lovers, have an opportunity to play abroad without any problem and show their talent.
