25 April 2023

Following an Optibet Virsliga, an 8th-round win against FS Jelgava (2:0) Valmiera FC head coach Jurgis Kalns shared his comments and thoughts with the media.

Valmiera FC head coach Jurģis Kalns: ”Thank you to all the spectators. I thought there were a lot of people in the stands, it’s hard for me to see from below. Thanks to everyone for the support, and thanks also to the Jelgava fans who drove their team forward. It turned out to be interesting football, at the beginning we were able to get inside quickly, of course, we were able to score goals at the very beginning. In that episode, the thought crept in that in the last four games we have these chances, the same player has a moment that he fails to use, if it was 1-0, it would be much easier to start the game. After that, we were able to carry on, Jelgava created a very good counterplay. Alvis Jaunzems goal changed our confidence in our abilities, then the second goal came. In the second half, we went out on the pitch, simulating a bit the game that will be in five days. Of course, Jelgava’s attacks became more frequent, they ran and could score goals in the second half, but I think we had to settle the game at the beginning of the second half. Meissa had two chances, had to score one goal, third and fourth, then Pulis had chances, and everything could have ended differently. Nothing has changed in the attacking actions either, we are still not satisfied with the attacking group, today the middle also fell a little. Overall, I’m happy with the three points and that was the most important thing today.”
