the comment

- it was necessary to notice that recently game of our football team improves. The command really starts to play football. Yes, we have conceded in England but when - nibud to all of us - taki should carry. All of us have deserved it. That children, losing on a match course, have managed to break a situation, speaks about much. The second time, it is possible to tell, has turned game in other party. Romy Pavljuchenko exit has affected also, has fine won back the first time of Sasha Kerzhakov, having exhausted Englishmen. Pavljuchenko has hammered in two balls, but I would not began to name only its hero of a meeting. To be called so all command led by the head coach deserves. Hiddink has tactically changed the contender, has brought confidence in our players that it is possible to win Englishmen.
