"We'll try to break through to the Commonwealth Cup prize holders"
On the last Commonwealth Cup, the team of Kyrgyzstan led by a 26-year-old (!) Head Coach Mirlan Eshenov, was a real sensation. Presenting a nice surprise for both the spectators and the football specialists, the Kyrgyz team won the match with the youth team Russia at the group round and took the 1st place in Group B! Finally, Kyrgyzstan managed to break through to the top-6 on the Commonwealth Cup-2015. And now, past a year, the same Eshenov and his interesting team are dreaming of a more serious goal. And the first step towards it is already made: Kyrgyzstan managed to outplay the youth team of Belarus in the starting match of the tournament.
