UK Minister for Europe and the Americas Alan Duncan, who is on a visit to Azerbaijan, commented on the Chelsea vs Qarabag football match that took place as part of the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage on Sept. 12.
Speaking to reporters in Baku, the minister said that although he is not a connoisseur in football, he already knows the match result.
Minister Duncan wished FC Qarabag to win Chelsea with a score of 7:0 in the upcoming match in Baku.
“I think that the quality of Azerbaijani football is ascending. Although your team lost against Chelsea, given the experience, this is not a good result. The result will be better gradually,” he added.
He noted that Tofig Bahramov is remembered by Britons with respect, and his name entered the history of British football.
