“I can’t say that our team was tactically much savvy and speak many pictures of the build of the game. But as a team it was phenomenal, spoke about the 2006 world Cup the “Profootball” Alexander Shovkovskiy. Penalty with Switzerland – scorched earth as emotions. Emotions at the time of the break-through did not exist. There was a clear perception and energy contact with the kicker. I physically understood what he wants to do and how he wants to do it. I used that as for himself”
