After a surprising loss last week FC Žalgiris immediately returned to winning ways, defeating Kauno Žalgiris 1:0 in the 3rd round of A league season.


Visitors from Kaunas were camped inside their own half all game long and didn’t have any opportunities to score.

The game-winning goal was scored on 65 minutes. Donovan Slijngard made a run into the penalty box and found Elivelto, who calmly scored his second goal of the season.

After the game Brazilian striker gave his first interview in English and was happy about his performance.

“Today was a very hard game. Opponents played close all the time, so we haven’t found spaces. I scored a goal and it’s very good. I feel happy, because my team won,” said Elivelto.
