The ricochet was farther from the defender which was disoriented by Boyko and Denis passed in a near corner. Slovaks continued to pile on the agony at our gate and for it were rewarded by Denis Boyko mistake. Our goalkeeper was obliged to save the team after distant blow of Yuraya Kutski which that struck, already having damage, however the ball appeared precisely in a grid from the exposed fists of the goalkeeper of Dynamo. The distant blow of Malinovsky already in the compensated time which did not become problem for the rival's goalkeeper became the only threat from the national team of Ukraine in the first half.
