‘I’m very pleased with the award and I tried to give my maximum, but most of all I wanted the team to win. We were eliminated after two games and wanted to save some face, but unfortunately we weren’t able to achieve that’, Ukraine's captain Ruslan Rotan’ said at the sidelines after the losing game with Poles.
When asked about his opinion on why the team lost and eventually got eliminated from Euro 2016, Rotan’ said the following: 'We could talk about the atmosphere in the team, but I can only say that it was positive – the players found common ground and had a good time together. The biggest thing,that we need to work on is our psychological level. Maybe we don’t have the right mentality'.
