Andriy YARMOLENKO: “Defeat is only our fault”

FC Dynamo Kyiv captain Andriy Yarmolenko has summarized the defeat against SL Benfica (0:2):

- It’s always difficult to start with 0:1, besides we must use our chances. I’m talking about myself in particular. I had two great scoring opportunities. I’m sorry I didn’t turn them into goals.

- Dynamo played better after the break again. What’s the reason?

- We tried to equalize as we played in front of our supporters. Champions League differs from the UPL a lot. In our league you have three-four seconds to make a decision. I guess after the break we played better. I think we need more games of the kind to make headway.

- What conclusions should be made to avoid this situation in away game?

- We’ll analyze the game tomorrow. There were both mistakes and positive aspects in our play. As I’ve said, we must use our chances. As for the next game, we’ll aim for victory. I’m sure coaches will pick right strategy.

- What’s atmosphere in the team like after this game?

- We support each other. Only in such a way we can cope with current problems. We aren’t going to give up. It will be difficult to get out of the group, but that’s only our fault.
