FC Rubin U21 lose 2:4 to Arsenal U21 within ROSGOSSTRAKH U21 Russian Championship MD 17.
As early as in the 15th minute, our players take the lead after Reza Shekari wins the ball back on the edge of the box and puts it into the top corner with the inside of his foot scoring his first goal for our club. It is Daniil Lukoyanov who makes it 2:0 after Maksim Lukoyanov´s assist with a confident one-on-one finish.
Nevertheless, Arsenal are not discouraged by the early goals making a comeback and scoring an equalizer. It is Aslanbek Sikoev´s short-range goal followed by Arkadiy Lobzin´s open goal header.
There is only team scoring in the second half and unfortunately it is Arsenal.
Lobzin and Ivakin make it 4:2 by the 69th minute. It is the third time Rubin reserves have lost letting our two-goal lead slip away.
P.S. Today, our 16-year-old centre back Vladislav Mikushin has made his U21 debut.
