Sikan: I’m shocked, nothing special happened during the break

The best player of the match and the scorer of the double for Antwerp is modest: the goals are a team effort

Attack Shakhtar Daniil Sikan commented on the brilliant victory of his team, which they won in Antwerplosing after the first half with a score of 0:2.

“A very difficult match, especially in the first half. But we made our game thanks, I think, to our fans, of whom there were a lot, and this was unexpected for us. We made a comeback, as they say, and took very important three points.”

“Transformation in the second half? To be honest, I’m shocked myself. After all, there was nothing special during the break: we talked a little, gathered our emotions, gathered our strength, and just went out to play real football, as Shakhtar always plays.”

“My goals? I think it’s just a team effort. Everyone saw how we came out for the second half, it was a completely different game. Both my goals and Rakitsky’s goal were all team actions.”

“The UEFA Man of the Match award is such a small dream: I always wanted to get it.”

Let us remind you that Shakhtar managed to beat Antwerp on the road in a productive match with a dramatic plot. Sikan (twice) and Yaroslav Rakitskiy scored for the Miners. In the final seconds, the hosts could have escaped defeat, but Toby Alderweireld missed the penalty. Later, the Ukrainian forward was named the best player of the match.

Later in the same Group H, Barcelona beat Porto away with a minimal score (1:0). The Catalan club is the sole leader of the quartet, Shakhtar is third with three points.
