Åge Hareide: Armenians gave us a lot of free space (video)


After Armenia vs Denmark FIFA World Cup 2018 Qualifier on Monday, the head coaches of the two teams expressed their opinions on the meeting. “I think we did not deserve such a crushing defeat. We started the game well. In any case, we were not ready or could not fight till the end. The first goal was our mistake. We should have been more attentive, but we allowed [our Danish rivals] to equalize the score. We were ready for the match, but we missed goals due to unnecessary mistakes," said Artur Petrosyan, Head Coach of the Armenian national team. “Naturally, I'm pleased with the result. We played with the same footballers who had won Poland. The team had rested for two days before the game, though they trained occasionally. That is why we had some difficulty in starting game in the first 15 minutes. Armenians simply gave us a lot of free space, which we used the opportunity. In the secnd half, we fully controlled the game,” said Åge Hareide, Denmark's national team head coach. Denmark’s team beat Armenian national football team 1-4 during Monday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier.
