“This tournament was special as all teams were strong and each game was decisive. We aimed for the win and we managed to beat the favorites, Kazakhstan and Ukraine, but we could not get a win in the game with Moldova despite opening the score. Fatigue played a role, because we arrived in Egypt mere hours before the tournament. In any way, I consider the silver medal a decent result, one that inspires for future victories,” said captain of the team, editor-in-chief at Mediamax Davit Alaverdyan.
