Norbert Hrnčár (head coach of MFK Ružomberok): „We have played a fantastic game and we have come here to advance what we said before the match was not just a phrase but really a reality. I think the course of the match and the fantastic performance have confirmed that. The match was also handled on the tactical side, we were surprised by the change in the second half. At that moment, we waited. It was a tactical plan and we were ready for it. During the week, we planned and prepared it, so the game was great on this page. Now he's hurting Everton. I think it's something amazing that the Europa League has come to Ružomberok after eleven years and we will have a holiday tomorrow when Everton comes to Ruzomberok. Let me say now that the stadium will be sold out. For such moments, it is worthy to make soccer, they really do work hard, and for the boys it is deserved, a huge reward."
