The main reason of the Ukraine’s 3-1 defeat by Scotland, which ended this side`s hopes of Euro 2008 qualification, was the mistakes, committed by players, Oleh Blokhin believes. “With such mistakes in the defense, no coaches may help. I told before the match that we may win if we do not mistaken, but namely childish mistakes in this match caused this result”.
The trainer is also not satisfied with the substitute players: “We made substitutions, but it appeared even worse”, Blokhin said.
“In the past, we strived for results and were fighting in every match. Namely this our combined team lacks now. Scotland deserved to win, because they wanted it more”, the Ukrainian coach said.
