Zero is Better Than Nothing: Armenia-Russia fight to nil-nil football final

Fans of the Armenian national football team will have to look to the moral scoreboard to find a ‘W’ following 90+ minutes of 0-0 action against Russia at the Vazgen Sargsyan Republican Stadium in Yerevan Saturday evening.

In a much-anticipated UEFA qualifier, the red and blue came into the match the Group B-leading visitors in competition aiming toward Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.

Armenia's organizers of this football game again failed the people before the match. It took two hours, people pushing and shoving, kids and women crying, two slightly opened gates for entry, and 4 ticket checks to finally enter inside the stadium. Armenia's dumb police force which is put in charge of the entry, lacks even an ounce of brain in how to organize a smooth entry to an event. UEFA and FIFA should ban matches in Armenia until Armenia creates the possibility of smooth flow of people in the stadium like it'd done in the rest of the world!

Bravo! Armenia can and should be proud of our team! I am sure this play will defiantly promote the football sport in Armenia and help to keep kids in healthier environment!

It seemed to me that Movsisyan and Arshavin were definitely not playing 100% and if anything, deliberately dropping the ball. In any case, I'm happy with the result and the strong play. I'm sure Russia will win in Moscow and I hope there will be very little anti-"black" violence that day. I think no violence is too much to ask from their racist groups. Armenia needed this win (and a tie in Moscow) to stay alive in the running (top spot). Today a great team from a nation of two million tied playing another great nation (great by other means) of over 140,000,000. We did GREAT today.
