The White-Blues defeated Dynamo České Budějovice by 4:0 at first VTB training camp in Austria.
The coaching staff of our team made necessary squad rotation – all footballers who started the previous match against CFR Cluj-Napoca remained on the bench and vice versa. Thus, 19-year-old goalkeeper Budachyov made his first appearance for the White-Blues’ first team. The Uruguayan international Laxalt did the same and stuck in memory by persistent runs on his wing during the first half.
The match was postponed for fifteen minutes due to unfavorable weather conditions. But this delay couldn’t confuse Dynamo players. They took initiative since the first minutes and picked up tempo on the Czech half of the pitch. In the 24th minute Lesovoy converted a foul on Tyukavin inside the penalty box into a 1:0 lead.
After the break new players came out but the game didn’t change. The White-Blues looked better and more creative ahead. Ten minutes of magic inspiration brought Dynamo a comfortable 4:0 win. Clinton N’Jie, Yaroslav Gladyshev and Arsen Zakharyan scored. Gladyshev opened his personal score in the first team while Zakharyan hit the target by a free kick masterpiece.
In the 62nd minute the White-Blues saw an unusual debut – fitness coach Ivan Karandashov who finished his professional career 4 years ago came out as a substitute instead of Parshivlyuk. 29-year-old coach looked confident and only once was late tackling improperly his Czech opponent. The referee saw this action and gave Ivan a yellow card.
The next friendly fixture is scheduled on July 2nd, when Dynamo will face AEL Limassol from Cyprus.
