“I received an invitation from the Armenian national team. To play for Armenian national team is my dream,” he said talking to NEWS.am Sport.

“Yes, I have received the invitation. All problems related to the documents have already been solved. On February 3 I will leave for France, where I will join the football team of Armenia. I chose name Aslanyan because it is the surname of my wife. She is an Armenian living in Europe. We met here.
To play for Armenian national team is my dream. It is difficult to speak about my expectations for now, because it will be my first game. I think everything will go well,” Norair Aslanyan said in an interview.
