For us we were preparing the first trip to Poltava and waiting in the evening for the last decision.  It’s not changing a lot to play here. It is clear they are playing in Ukraine, not in their town, but here in Kiev they can also move their supporters. In 90 minutes we want to do our work here. The decision is not easy but with big responsibility. UEFA yesterday found the best decision to play and also with protecting everybody, us and them.”Where can you listen?talkSPORT 2 will bring you full live commentary of Vorskla Poltava vs Arsenal.
