Azerbaijan head coach: "We did not expect this result"

"We expected the game to be difficult. We had analyzed the opponent and knew Switzerland's playing qualities". reports that this was said by the head coach of the Azerbaijan women's national team, Siyasat Asgarov.

The experienced specialist commented on the match with the Swiss national team within the European Championship qualifying. Asgarov attributed the 0:4 defeat to the strength of the opposing team: "It seems that the quality speaks for itself. Nevertheless, my team fought. It is true that we lag behind in some components. We still need time.
We wanted to take advantage of our chance at home, but it didn't happen. What disappoints us the most is that the account is like this. We did not expect the score to be like this. The opponent forced us to make mistakes. The Swiss national team increased the pace of the game. The pace was also high in the game against Hungary. There, the players used all their strength. Also, the team had traveled a long way. Fatigue was palpable. After that, we need to work on mistakes and look ahead".

It should be noted that Azerbaijan drew with Hungary in the first game of the group (1:1).
