“The 12th full player—in the face of our beloved fans—played yesterday as part of Pyunik,” Sogomonyan wrote, in part, on Facebook. “This historic victory would not have been without you [the fans].
“Together we can do many things.”
Pyunik defeated Tobol 1-0 in the Yerevan return leg of the second qualifying round in Europa League.
The aggregate was 2-2, but the Armenian club advanced to the next round on away goal.
