I think an arrangement was made with our FAs, Djokovic and Medvedev. Russia gives us the win in football and Djokovic gives Medvedev the win in tennis 😂🤦‍♂️

Let's be honest, we did a lot of things well and scored some very nice team goals, but we can't complain about luck either. Our defense was as suspect as it can be and the Russians clearly didn't have their day.

It did show however that a 2 striker system can be a very good thing. The problem it creates is we already look like getting overrun with 2 defensive mids and you need pace on the wings. So no Tadic or SMS. Pace though is another thing we had today and something you need in modern football, unless you're that good that you can camp on the opposition half and carve them open just with intelligent passing. Which we can't.

Jovic showed a lot tonight. It's clear the atmosphere at Real is toxic, cause they really do tend to ignore him when he plays. He's a very slick player and a top striker. I think he should move ASAP.

Mladenovic looks to have sealed that left back position, even if he played as left mid tonight. His crossing is world class. Gudelj confirmed he's our best central mid (defensive anyway) and Vlahovic is another great prospect for the future. I like his eagerness.

Scotland lost again and so we have nothing to look forward to as we start again. Some day though..some day!

Norbert Könyves, just like Nemanja Nikolic born in Zenta, Vojvodina. 12 years ago played for Topola in Serbia's 4th division, but MTK coach József Garami saw his raw talent and brought him to MTK. after that, his career stagnated a little, moved to Paks, Debrecen, Vasas, is now at Zalaegerszeg, had his NT debut at age 31 a few weeks ago in, well, Belgrade, where he scored the winner :D

So if Serbia gets relegated they have a chance to play either Faroe islands, Gibraltar, albania, Lithuania, Greece, Kosovo*, Armenia, Georgia, Bulgaria/Ireland, Slovakia/Israel, Luxembourg, Azerbaijan and northern Ireland/romania? Wowwwwwwww
We’re an absolute shitshow at the moment covid injuries and U21s crucial game hitting us hard, plus Radoi lacks experience.. many debuts and quasi debuts these last two breaks.. several players who should never be in the team and have never played together.. but thankfully we stay in league B and also pot 2

First of all congratulations Krle. Wish you & your family all the health in the world so you can expect many more mini Krles to come. :D

Regarding this win. Yes, they played batter but this shouldn't be alibi for the many, many disasters that this & previous FA put this nation through. They all need to be sacked & removed but unfortunately until whole system in this country is removed - they are staying. Nobody is even mentioning resignation from the FA.

Back to the game: Russia could have scored a few goals and even had more shots from memory. We still struggled to get the ball out when they high pressured us. Better pitch conditions did help us through and with 3 strikers, it finally meant that our opponents wouldn't just walk to the center without any pressure from us. Don't know what is happening with Russian football but them having Brazilians as their GK and full back is a joke. Biggest country in the world and with 150 million people that produced the likes of Yashin & Akinfeev falls to this? They also seem to be struggling big time talent wise.

I didn't watch the last two games (needed a break after the Scotland match) but I was telling my brother something like this would happen. Right when you're about to give up on them and expect the worst, they'll put up a good performance, only to inevitably disappoint when it matters most.

It's nice to see Vidic echo what many of us here have been saying. Until the culture/mentality of the NT changes, and that has to start with major, fundamental changes at FSS, we will repeat the same story over and over. I think many of us who have played sports, at varying levels :), understand how important team atmosphere is and how damaging a negative culture can be, regardless of the talent you may have.

Jović and Madrid have been a bad match (so far) for various reasons.

1) Madrid doesn't play with two strikers. Partly because it doesn't suit the way their squad has been composed. They need more central midfielders in order to balance their team. Jović isn't adaptable to any other positions because he's a pure 9.

2) Benzema is and will continue to be their first choice because he's a much better player individually and technically than Jović. Benzema is on a similar level to Ramos in terms of team hierarchy for Zidane who stuck up for him even through his toughest periods at Madrid when he simply couldn't score and the media wanted him out. The difference here is that Benzema is even closer to Zidane on a personal level.

3) Jović has a body language that pisses people off, especially in Madrid where they get on the back of players very easily (1-2 games) because of what they demand. It looks like he doesn't care so he becomes a very easy target for the Madrid-press. It's their way or no way. That's why Bale was treated like he was (he lived in his own bubble in Madrid) and local players like Lucas Vázquez (who's mediocre) are being portrayed in a whole different way. That's why the Madrid-press are constantly looking for the smallest of missteps from Jović.

Jović has another problem. He's timid and still hasn't adapted to life in Spain. He's been through quite a bit since he signed for Madrid in his personal life. His success previously has been closely connected to people believing in him to 100%. Zidane didn't really want to sign him (despite what he says in the media). Jović is of this newer generation of players that need full confidence in order to perform and Madrid is a place where you need to be incredibly opportunistic in order to be successful. Nobody will give you 0,1% for free. That's life at the top.
