And this we were able to make adjustments. Croats started to waste the ball, a lot of it is controlled, and the blows rained down already at our gates. Long shot Elovich until 12 minutes not achieved his goal. Defeated on the right flank Koval, Horvath a major blow drove the ball under the crossbar.

At this point, unfortunately, lost the sharpness at the gate Ukich. Somehow this situation had to change, and the Ukrainians found that for reserves. As a result, 15 minutes Zhurba and Belotserkovets together faced Unichem, and not left to chance for salvation – 1:1. Immediately to fix the situation is another ball of Korsun, but with a 10-meter shot just over the bar.

Until the end of the half the game was equal, and the only time we had seriously worried for Ukraine, when our gate was assigned a dangerous free kick. It was in the 19th minute, and the attempted kick at goal Elovich our guys blocked.

As if there was a break – both teams continued to adhere to his tactics. Once spent goalkeepers Korsun and Elovich – Ukic and Ivanac demonstrated a high class. In such a viscous game of the time could not be a lot they were not. In the 29th minute of the first Belotserkovets from a lethal position has punched above gate, and then marinovic of a very dangerous point in front of the gate sent the ball wide of the target. Moments sometimes occurred spontaneously. 31 minutes Novak from a tight angle from the left edge of the shot and the ball somehow found the post.

Somewhere in the 33rd minute was to say that time is against us – minute by minute I was flying with incredible speed. After a minute of Mato Stankovic took time out exclusively to his players a bit of a breath. After that moment, the Croats are very reliable took the ball under control, and our guys had to expend energy to regain. And it was very difficult.

This control opponent and kill time, which is becoming less and less. And then the game left took Smith, after the transfer which Razuvanov as a sling shot under the crossbar. Croatia went into the game with the fifth field…

It was very hard. Very! In order to knock down the opponent with the attack, 40 seconds before the siren Alexander Kosenko took a timeout.
