– Andrey Arshavin on the Rossiya 2 TV channel
We played quite open in the second half and allowed the Poles to play on the counter, which they like to do. Unfortunately they scored with their one chance. We were a little bit tired in the second half I think. We couldn't create the necessary pressure on their goal.
– Roman Shirokov, speaking to Rossiya 2
I wouldn't say that the Poles attacked dangerously...they gave us territory and played on the counter-attack. We didn't play particularly convincingly in attack. We often gave the ball away...Everything will be decided in the final match.
