Mr. Iurii Vetokha, President of the Crimean football union:

"First of all, it should be note that the Crimean boys as good as their rivals from the famous children`s schools from the mainland of Russia, such as CSKA or "Zenit". And the summer tournaments "Arena Yevpatoriya Cup" proved it once again.

There were a lot of emotions and struggle on the field. For example, at the match FC CSKA (who won the tournament) and the Sports school "Saki", Crimean boys were ahead during the match 2-0, although at the end they lost a minimum (2:3). We have a wonderful rising generation of players who get a huge competitive experience at such tournaments.

The idea to play a match with the Moscow CSKA veterans appeared spontaneously. We were observing the children`s tournament matches for two days and held a friendly game after the awarding ceremony (two half-time of 15 minutes).  It was especially nice to play with such great masters of football as Evgeniy Aldonin and Oleg Pestriakov. The result is not the main thing at such a match, the impressions and emotions that you get when you are on the same field with the legends of national football are important."
