The coach of the national team of Russia Alexei Zhamnov commented on the situation with striker Nikita Gusev and remembered the opening match of the 2018 World Cup against France (7: 0).
– There are positive moments, and need to focus. Played until the first match of the tournament. In the next few years, with the French, we are slightly moved away from our game. It is clear that now there was only France, but then the opponents will be much more serious. The team must play for all 60 minutes. Gusev arrived, we will follow him. Will there be training on Sunday? Look, he is not yet ready to play. We will keep the situation under control. We are not in a hurry. Going to look now play Austria, to analyze. Specifically, until them I can not say anything, as the team have not seen. I think that in the next match will be Koshechkin in goal.
Russia – France – 7: 0. Goals
The following rival of the Russian team at the World Championships in Copenhagen will be the team of Austria. The meeting will take place on 6 may.
