Roman Berezovsky to be Armenia captain in Italy match

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian national football team coach has noted the upcoming match vs. Italy as a great event for all the fans.

“Though the team is not represented in its full squad, it is ready for the match. As for Artur Sarkisov, he has recovered from the injury. Goalkeeper Roman Berezovsky will be the team’s captain,” Vardan Minasyan said.

“Italians have always shown tactically good football. Though the present team is different, I deem Prandelli one of the best coaches who offers different tactical solutions,” Minasyan said.

“Though Italians tend to show more defensive football, they have recently adopted more attacking tactics,” the coach said.

Armenia vs. Italy World Cup 2014 qualifier is scheduled for October 12, at Yerevan’s Hrazdan stadium.
