Before the match, I said that the Slovaks, at least, will not lose, but Valera is so lucky that anything can be anything – and so it happened. Sometimes we still have to be lucky.
The only thing I liked today was dedication. It was clear that the guys fought to the end. Everyone was killed, there were no indifferent, no one who would remove their legs. In general, I did not like anyone, but all together – great! “- said Chervichenko in an interview with the correspondent of” Championship “Valentina Sivkovich.
