Michael Krmenčík’s Commentary
The score of the match was opened by Michael Krmenčík. “When I saw the defender on my left hand I knew what to do. I stuck myself and then shot towards the goalkeeper,“ Krmenčík was pleased. “The match was not easy under this weather condition, we quickly had a lack of power. But I think we were well-prepared and we won. I think we deserved it, we had plenty of chances,“ he added.
