The Colombian attacking midfielder Jorge Carrascal told about a tough win over CSKA (3:2) and his special emotions from facing the former side.
— During the pre-game interview Marcel said that you couldn't get enough sleep after the flight. Do you feel better now?
— Yes, of course, I felt tired after such a long journey. But we are still professionals, so when having a little rest I was ready to play. I am always eager to come to the pitch and I am glad to do it today.
— How did you spend time at the Colombian national team?
— I am very happy because we got two important wins. I always feel joy when I represent my country. In addition, we have a very good team, a real family, which is united by the goal of making it to the World Cup. So I'm very proud of it.
— CSKA enjoyed their big advantage in the first half. What did Marcel say during the break?
— I think that the first half was not the most successful for us. But we came out for the second half with great desire and motivation and managed to play better.
— What was your motivation for the second half? Was it a special game for you?
— I think that all the matches are very important. Of course, I experienced strong emotions from returning to the CSKA stadium, where I played for a year and a half. But, I repeat, all the matches are important now, because we are struggling for the top 3 and always strive to win. That's why we are highly motivated all together.
— Can you call this game the best for you at Dynamo?
— I always go out on the pitch with good motivation and desire. It was the same today, and I am glad to play at a good level.
— The game against Zenit is ahead. How will you prepare for this clash?
— It will be a very important Cup fixture. So we are strongly motivated to show good football on Wednesday. On Sunday we will start preparing for the match against Zenit. The head coach will tell us about the opponent, and everything will be fine.
We will be waiting for all Dynamo fans at this important game and count on their support. It will add motivation to us. I invite all the fans to our stadium!
