Today we all watched in ore how one great play turned into a monumental one. Nick started to score approximately 25 minutes into the game (1:0), and second goal was from Dima K. (2:0) and then WHITEs actually tied several times (2:2 and 3:3). SO game was not a sure thing for at least first hour. Little we knew that the rest of the 9 goals will be scored by one person!
In a brief interview after the game Nick said –
Correspondent: Who did you get to this point in you life to be able to score 10 goals in one game with 25 players?
Nick: Well, first of all thanks to my mom, my grandmother, my dad, and the guys, who drink all the time in the neighborhood. They thought me how to play.
Correspondent: Do you have any ladies you would like to thank?
Nick: Yes. My girlfriend Anya. She lives in New York. Thank you Anya! I love you!
Correspondent: Thank you very much Nick. Good luck next year.
