  • “Adelaide United” – “Bunyodkor” pre-match press conference has been hold today in “Hindmarch” stadium.

    First was press conference with away team head coach Mirjalal Kasimov and central midfielder Javlon Ibrokhimov.

    - Tomorrow you will be going only for win or...
    - First of all, I wish good day to everybody!
    It’s very good question… We all look forward to see a good game tomorrow. “Adelaide” is well-balanced and disciplined team. They play defensive tactic no matter it is home or away game. It would be not easy game for us, but we came here not only for a visit.
    Now three teams in our group have good chances to advance to play-off stage, but “Adelaide” is in better position. So, we must to use every created chance to win tomorrow

    - Now your team is in much better form than it was before first game against “Adelaide” in Tashkent, isn't it?
    - Yes, now we seem to find our play. But I guess we did not so bad in first match in Tashkent. We attacked hard after conceded goal, but failed to pass rival’s solid defense. It’s not easy to pass the defense if the rival defends with all 11 players. We conceded first goal after set-piece and second one after a counter-attack. I expect my team to produce nice and skillful play tomorrow, because a win may take us to the top position.

    - Would you be satisfied with draw result tomorrow?
    - In my opinion, win is much better. (Laughing)

    - Who is the strongest team in “E” group?
    - Every team is strong with its unique style and it’s difficult to say, who is the strongest. Now only “Gamba Osaka” has almost no chance.
