Spanish manager of the Armenia national football team Joaquin Caparros commented on Armenia losing to North Macedonia 0-5 during a post-match press conference.
“First of all, I need to apologize to our fans. We had high hopes and were very excited about this match and aspired to make our fans happy, but the match didn’t go well. We missed a goal during the first minutes, and this had a negative impact on our game. After the match, it is easy to say we could have chosen other players. The newcomers aren’t really to blame for this defeat. The opponent played well, but we didn’t. Now we need to analyze this match, criticize ourselves and understand which footballers are psychologically strong to play during the next match against Germany,” Caparros stated.
The Germany team will play against Armenia on Nov. 14.
