Mante Voskresenskaia, the best player of Lithuania: I can’t rate my personal game, because it its too selfish. We work as a team and today the team played very well. This game was very hard, it was hard to score goals, because the opponents had a very good goalkeeper. Our defense in the first half was very good, but in the second half was very bad, that’s why I think we lost the game.
