FC BATE forward Artsiom Kantsavy, who scored two goals in the game against FC Smorgon (7:0) commented on the game for fcbate.by:
- In recent years we got eliminated from the Belarusian Cup quite early. And we were determined to stop this spell. What is more, we wanted to get positive feelings for our fans and prepared hard in spite of the second division opponent. We knew Smorgon had several good players with experience in the Vysshaya Liga.
From the first minute we were quite aggressive and showed 100 per cent commitment to win and scored two quick goals. That can break any team. This helped us to control the situation. On the whole we had a good game. I am happy to have scored two goals. I want to play as much as possible and to help the team. When scoring the first goal that was a header. And in the second episode I saw that Zaven Badoyan was preparing for a shot and felt there would be a rebound. Everything I needed is to find it. I am happy Smorgon did not start to foul too often as it sometimes happens when the team loses hopes to win. That was a nice match in this regard.
