Henrik Mkhitaryan: the whole team can be called a hero

Scorer of two goals during Shakhtar Donetsk vs. Nordsjælland game Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan Henrik Mkhitaryan attributed the victory to all of his team-mates.

“Though everybody considers me a hero of the game, I don’t feel I am. Our all team can be called a hero. We all equally tried hard to win the game,” Mkhitaryan said.

As UEFA official website reports, Henrik Mkhitaryan's first and second UEFA Champions League goals earned a 2-0 reward for FC Shakhtar Donetsk after a dominant performance against group stage newcomers FC Nordsjælland.

The attacking midfielder has been in deadly form this term, netting 12 times in just nine Ukrainian Premier League games. He continued that rich vein of form at the Donbass Arena in this Group E opener, his well-taken goals at the end of each half clinching a deserved three points. The hosts did not have it all their own way, though, especially in the first 44 minutes.
