Armenia National team will play against Italy in their last game of EURO 2020 qualification round.

Ahead of the game, Armenia national team coach Abraham Khashmanyan faced the press and VBET News were present in the pre-conference.

Khashmanyan stated, his side is ready to face Italians.

Roberto Mancini’s side have already booked their place in the final round of EURO 2020. VBET News have asked Khashmanyan, how they will play against the national without motivation.

Khashmanyan answered: “I don’t agree that Italia National Team don’t have any motivation. First of all, they are highly professionals. How can the side, which have victories in all games, be without motivation?

Armenian national team defender Varazdat Haroyan is in the squad again, after he missed the game against Greece in Yerevan. But Khashmanyan said, his presence doesn’t matter and they will play with 5 defenders.

“We will play with five defenders. In this situation, we can’t do anything else. We have injured players. In the last 10 years, we are fixed in the same game plan with four players but I think, we need another game plane,” said Khashmanyan.

The manager was also asked about the absence of AS Roma midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

“Henrikh Mkhitaryan is the soul of our national team. He is a great player and very important for us. But he is not the only one, who will miss the game. There also other creative players who will miss the game,” Khasmanyan replied.

“Italy is one of the best sides in the world. And I know that they will have successful results,” concluded the manager.

The game between Armenia and Italy will take place on Monday, November 18.
