COPENHAGEN, Denmark (ArmeniaNow) — Hundreds of Danes gave Armenia a standing ovation as the visitors completed their incredible 4-0 thrashing of the home team last week.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier became a moment of truth for Vardan Minasyan and his underperforming tendency that suffered four straight defeats, including the latest one at home against the underdog Malta last Friday, in the ongoing campaign.
Such results renewed calls for Minasyan’s resignation, but the team coach made it clear he still had something to say with his players and would not step down on his own like he intended to do earlier this year following a 0-3 defeat from the visiting Czech Republic when, though, his resignation was not accepted by the Armenian Soccer Federation and its boss Ruben Hayrapetyan.
Before leaving for Denmark, Minasyan assumed full responsibility for the previous results and performance of the team, pledging that he would do everything to rewind the team spirit and put Armenia back into a winning mode. And the Havakakan did not fail to deliver.
