Not a bad group but pretty tricky, all these teams have fighting spirit which is something we usually don't have.
2002-2006 was the weakest point of our NT imo even if we did qualify twice in that period. I'm honestly more worried about our goal scoring than our defense. Our poor finishing usually costs us dearly.just like we had to qualify against slovenia :/ or slovakia already @ 2006
our national team is a walking joke
:scared: remembering the last game against andorra
depends on the new coach, as its unlikely with fursenko that hiddink stays, might be better as guus would stay with the same old players, but at the worst borodyuk could be his successorHopefully we'll see more contribution from the likes of Dzagoev, Mamaev, Rebko, Bukharov, etc.
Ex zenit president.So Hiddink is going to leave? Who the hell is Fursenko?
mutko still there as the head of the russian sport federation. wont be that much changed under fursenko, as both are associated with gazprom, both former zenit president etc.So Fursenko is the head of Russia Fed. now? What happened to the other guy?
Thanks for filling me in.mutko still there as the head of the russian sport federation. wont be that much changed under fursenko, as both are associated with gazprom, both former zenit president etc.
kapkov, head of the national academy and a friend of abramovitch, was also a compatitor and a frontrunner, resigned from the election in december, that was also the reason guus left. unfortunatly a lot of politics involved.
sarsania new advisor for the national team, not unlikely that they will try to get advocaat back to russia.
