The head coach of the Russian national team Stanislav Cherchesov spoke out after the League of Nations match with Serbia (0: 5).
- Did the match with Moldova [0: 0] somehow affect the team's form?
- The test match with Moldova was on the calendar, which does not depend on us. A game is a game, all teams play three matches, what's the problem? There was a difference in movement in this and previous matches, I can see that.
- What conclusions did you make about the young players? Who can you count on?
- There are always 45 minutes that can give you the opportunity to win back, although today it was difficult to do. We tried to do it, but we didn’t succeed, although we did create a few moments. We couldn't even score a goal of prestige. Another thing is that it is impossible to draw final conclusions about this or that player based on such a game.
We didn't have too many players. Therefore, we have always said that young footballers should be introduced carefully. It used to be that they called them to several training camps, waited for them to settle down, then let them play. Now they have to play right away.
On the one hand, I want to win. On the other hand, it is frivolous and wrong to make claims to young players who are called up to the national team for the first time.
The national team is a team that has its own foundations. Sight-playing is difficult. Two years ago in Sweden, we had the same thing, a lot of players dropped out, and we began to assemble a team on the go, - said Cherchesov.
Concentration of horror of the Russian national team: played the worst match in 16 years, failed both tasks of 2020, complicated the selection for the World Cup in Qatar
