Motherwell effort in Kuban Krasnodar loss pleases McCall

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall has praised his side for their performance in their Europa League qualifier with Kuban Krasndoar.

The Steelmen were beaten 1-0 in Russia in the second leg to lose 2-0 on aggregate in the third round of qualification but McCall felt his side put in a decent showing against a team worth a lot more money than his.

"I was proud of them, it was a good effort," he said.

"I have watched them (Kuban) four times and I watched them on Sunday against Spartak (Moscow), and they are a really good side.

"They are talking about (Ibrahima) Balde going for £10-11m and the boy in the middle (Charles Kabore) for £7-8m.

"The effort and determination was good and we're just disappointed to lose the game."
