Magomed Adiev: “We didn’t take advantage of our chances”

Kazakhstan head coach Magomed Adiev commented on the match against Finland.

– We lost - what the score is on the scoreboard is what the game reflects. But the game was heading towards a draw. They had their chances, and we did have ours. I had the feeling that the game would end in a draw. But we missed a goal and didn't take advantage of our chances.

We wanted to press the opponent in the center of the field. Some things worked, some didn’t. 

We need to analyze the last game overnight and make a plan for the match against Northern Ireland tomorrow. Definetely, after the defeat we will make some changes.

All opponents are tough, everyone loses points. Moreover, we wanted to please the fans; today so many people came to support us. However, defeat happens. Of course it's unpleasant. Especially for me, as the head coach.
