YEREVAN. - On the eve of Russia vs. Armenia match the captain of Armenian national football team Sargis Hovsepyan gave his forecast to UEFA website.
“I believe we have equal opportunities. No doubt, at home Russians will choose attack tactics and that will give us fine opportunities for counterattacks. We must use these chances with uttermost efficiency. Three points will bring Russia very close to Euro 2012 final Stage. But Armenia could as well use the victory to clutch from waybill to Poland and Ukraine,” said Hovsepyan
He considers his former teammates Andrey Arshavin and Aleksander Kerzhakov the main sticking force of Russia.
“Both of them are capable of determining the match outcome, we should be careful with them. We recognize the strength of our opponent but we aren’t going to lose,” he added.
