"I felt proud to be the referee of the first game held in the lands freed from occupation."

Idman.biz reports that Ali Aliyev, the head referee of the Qarabag - MOIK match held in Khankendi within the 1/8 final stage of the Azerbaijan Cup, said this in a statement to the PFL press service.

A participant of the Patriotic War said that there was a very good atmosphere in the stadium during the historical match: "Our fans only chanted slogans: "Martyrs never die, the motherland will not be divided!" It was the most important appointment and game of my life."

Aliyev emphasized that he tried to arbitrate different matches on green pitch: "I am proud of this. I express my gratitude to my state and nation that they supported us a lot in the war. As a fighter, the feeling there was completely different. Our idea was to go ahead and liberate our lands. As a judge, we have seen the fruits of our labor. We were very happy."

It should be noted that the match between Qarabag and MOIK ended with the victory of the representative of Aghdam with a score of 1:0.
