Defender of the national team of Ukraine Vitaly Nikolenko shared his emotions from confrontation with Portugal (0:0) in the qualifying match for Euro 2020.
Also, Nikolenko noted that he did not want hard to play against Cristiano Ronaldo. Defender pleased that the Portuguese star drew attention to it.
“Bernardo Silva is a fast, creative player, very sharp, takes creative solutions. Two weeks ago I played against Pedro, I also liked very much. This is a two player, against whom it was very difficult to play,” said soccer player in the program “Profootball”.
Not trying to intentionally play hard against [Ronaldo]. It turned out that clearing the ball, and in the end end up. But I didn’t want. I also came across. So a bit of each other stuck. It’s nice when you pay attention to one of the best players in the world, but I do not attach much importance.
