Yura Movsisyan: Armenia will only improve with time and experience

Following an outstanding performance with two goals in 0-4 victory over Denmark, Armenia’s Yura Movsisyan responds to the Armenian Reporter‘s questions via Facebook:

Q. Have you played at that Copenhagen stadium before, while you were in the Danish league and have you scored there before?

A. Yes I have played there before with Randers FC but I didn’t get to score. But that never played a role in my thinking because every game is a new game.

Q. Is this the fastest goal of your career? And do you think it proved decisive for the outcome?

A. Yes it was definitely the fastest goal of my career and it was for sure a very decisive goal for us because it gave us an advantage in which we knew Denmark had to play more open and direct.

Q. This is the third time in two years that Armenia wins with four goals, and in each case you were the author or you assisted in the first goal. Do your goals tend to spur others on the team to action?

A. I believe that the whole team depends on the strikers to score the goals and that’s why I think it is great when I score the first goal then it takes pressure off the whole team.

Q. Despite the score, Armenia continues to give up the ball a lot and not much progress can be seen compared to two years ago. How and when could this be improved?

A. This is still a young team with young players. For many of the players each game is the biggest game in their life so for them to be nervous is very normal. This is the reason you have players with experience so when things do not go according to plan you can have them step up and help the others out. This will only improve with time and experience.
