Dinamo bask in semi-final satisfaction

"The score says it all, no goals against in a semi-final is not easy," MFK Dinamo Moskva coach Faustino Pérez said after the 3-0 defeat of Marca Futsal, double goalscorer Romulo's delight clear.

Faustino Pérez, Dínamo coach
I think we had a very good game, both defensively and in attack. Our attacking was perhaps better in the first half because the second we had less possession and Marca had more of the ball. I think we were a little better in general in acttack because we have three goals and did not concede, we were more ambitious from the outset, we have come to the party and we had no doubts.

I have to congratulate my players because they had a very good game. The score says it all, no goals against in a semi-final is not easy and even less so against a team with such quality.

Romulo, Dinamo double goalscorer & man of the match
I am very happy about having put on such a great performance, with the help of my team-mates. I managed to score two goals and help the team going through the final we have dreamed so much about. Dinamo have already won a European title but we are going to try to win a second because, with respect, I believe we deserve it. We have to congratulate this team for what they have been doing and we deserve a trophy like the UEFA Futsal Cup.

We tried to be strong in man-marking and quick on the counter. We have a very aggressive defence. To be in the final is a special moment for all of us, The UEFA Futsal Cup is an excellent competition. It's my first participation and I'm very happy to be straight away in the final. Now we need to rest for the fight for the title on Sunday.

Tiago Polido, Marca coach
I think in the first half could not put pressure on. It is very difficult to press Dinamo players of such a high standard, players have to be trained to the very highest level to do so or it is very difficult. Nevertheless I have to congratulate my players for what they have achieved.

Adriano Foglia, Marca forward
First of all I have to congratulate Dínamo, they played well and deserved to win. Our nerves confused us a little in the beginning. We play well taking into count our limitations, we needed more concentration, more courage, and we know that at this level when you make a mistake it makes everything more difficult.

The campaign is positive, we know that we were going to be troubled by Dinamo. Getting here isn't easy. We had two or three chances to get back to 2-1 and tried everything but could not beat their
