Football: Russia will not work on European Championship 2008

October 9 2006

Team Russia wonderful team. Even with a foreign coach, it remains true to herself. Match with Israel, was supposed to respond to the sacramental question Rodion Raskolnikov, "I trembling creature, or the right to have?". Alas, the answer was obvious to all posmotrevshim football last Saturday.

The match took place on the field of the legendary Dynamo. The once powerful club is now dragging out a miserable existence: the problem with money, the lack of games, and the lack of points. Maybe this year for the first time in its history, "white-blue" fly in the first division. However, these circumstances did not embarrass coach Guus Hiddink Russia caused the national team, three players Dynamo.

After unconvincing friendly game with Latvia and the home draw with Croatia, the main competitors for the withdrawal of the group, our fans were right to wait for their first victory of his team is the team of Israel.

Our coach was a sin to complain about the selection of players. Team united almost all the strongest players in fact the optimal composition. It seemed that victory was inevitable. But five minutes after the starting whistle, the fans were quick to add on three points in the treasury team Russia.

Gus does not change itself and continues to play home matches, even with one striker. That evening at the tip was Pavel Pogrebnyak in attack actions helped him rapidly Andrei Arshavin. In the fourth minute, the pair and erected the first goal.

Catching the Israelis to counter-attack, the best scorer of the Tomsk FC Tom "funneling the ball speed, Arshavin. That, in turn, at speed away from Gershon's penalty and sends the ball from the goalkeeper to the near corner. As a result 1:0.

Having scored a quick goal, our team tried to develop its own success, but Pogrebnyak missed several advantageous points. Already in the middle of the first half on the field appeared Kerzhakov, replacing guard Bililyatdinova. This was the first serious mistake Dutch coach.

Coupled with the long been showing its level Smertina (very much a marriage in passing), with the departure of midfielder Lokomotiv Russian team lost pleymeykera, and, consequently, lost the midfield. And so, with a stock of the three best performing in country, applicants for gold and captains of their teams - Titov, Loskova and Radimova.

After replacement, the defense team of Israel continued to torment Arshavin and Pogrebnyak, but the latter hit the bar gates of the enemy. Ending half was our dictation.

After the break, the Russian National team went all the same composition with a hole in the center line and without the slightest change in tactics. In turn, Israel national team coach made two substitutions, rebuilding the game in central defense, and soon his team leveled game, increasingly began to threaten goal Guest Book. But the real chances to score it has not yet reached.

In the 57th minute, our coach makes a second mistake of replacing the still active, but sitting on a starvation diet Pavel Pogrebnyak on Marat Izmailov, deduct the winning score?

In sluggish game, firing in the 77th minute, Igor Semshova instead Zhirkov Gus made a crucial mistake, we absolutely lost the midfield, and one of the first major counterattack on our gate turned into a bare Ben Shushan.

Substitute "African-izraylityanen" Tammuz, took advantage of a mistake Vasily Berezutsky, twice beat him, broke and ran Ben Shushan has finished the ball into the net with the full connivance of Alexei Berezutsky. Akinfeev throws up his hands ... 1:1.

the next ten minutes of the game, even having gone to the pile, to change our team because nothing had been able to 1:1 and the blame for the result must fully share the coach, his "cautious" tactics and inept substitutions may be signing the verdict of our team - Goodbye 2008 European Championships.

P. S. Meanwhile, in a totally "different country", at the far end of the universe, the Russian national team on mini-football in the top three, a team of 18 champions, junior plays with the first team rankings Portuguese 4:1, and even homeless people from the banks of the Neva, Champions Peace among the homeless.
