Senior Russian national team goalkeeper Yaroslav Askarov and forward Rodion Amirov both spoke about their feelings following the 3:0 victory against the Czech Republic in the concluding match of the 2020 Karjala Cup in Helsinki, Finland.

Senior Russian national team goalkeeper Yaroslav Askarov:

- To be honest, this was the easiest game of the lot for me. I am feeling better with every passing match. The toughest game was against Finland, as I hadn't played for a long time before that fixture. What will this Karjala Cup give me for the future? It was a great experience for me and all of us! We're young players. My feelings from working with Igor Larionov? All coaches have their own approaches. He works with the skaters more, but everything is fine and the atmosphere in the dressing room is really good. We all support each other.

Senior Russian national team forward Rodion Amirov:

- The main thing is that we won this competition. It was nice to play against senior players, this will help us ahead of the World Junior Championship. Igor Larionov found the right words ahead of every game. The Russian national team always plays to win. We tried to stuck to the plan and we managed to win.
