“We seemingly rectified the situation, scored a goal after the first goal of “Locomotive”. Everything was going fine, but then allowed his opponent to escape in counter attack and conceded a second and third goal. I think it did to our players. Continue to play, but could not score. Lost the case – we will continue to prepare. Perhaps we were quick to move to Canada, or the size, but it is what it is. What’s the site if you have to score?” – quoted Krikunova official website of “Dynamo”.
