Football: And yet we are stronger Estonians: 2:0

October 12 2006

Match with Estonia, became the last team to Russia in native walls and the third official game under the guidance of Guus Hiddink. With that rival our team has met several times and not always celebrated the victory. We can recall a friendly match before the World Cup in Japan and Korea (1:2), as well as match two years ago in qualifying for "mundial" in Germany (1:1).

But all these were guest of the meeting, and the last home game was held in Krasnodar, under the leadership of now unemployed Yuri Semin, our team is not a stone left on the team in Estonia (4:0) and the first hat-trick Dima Sychev.

Petrovsky Stadium was full of fans, and only in the guest sector remained vacant seats. In Moscow, such a full house was expected.

As is often the case in recent times, our fans once again distinguished themselves by "civility", booed anthems Baltic republic. But we believe that the arrival of England fans have our correct itself, but the overall level of football team, too, grows.

Teams before the match

Ingredients released for the match surprised its predictability, from the first minutes on the field appeared all pets from St. Petersburg Torcida. And if questions on the exit Arshavin and Bystrov should not, the decision to release Gus mainly composed Anyukova (largely redundant position Bystrov), and the more "dead" Kerzhakov jeopardize the outcome of a match.

The appearance on the field, Titov was mean attacking football with pleymeykera, but as it is not so. Egor is located next to the position of the guard Aldonin, replacing "ailing" Alexei Smertina. The rest of the game and tactics of our team did not differ from the match with a team of Israel. Two defensive midfielder, one pure striker - Gus stayed true to himself. The first half was a worthy demonstration of the absurdity of such a construction.

Results of Israel

In total possession of the ball in the attacking team from Russia absolutely nothing happened. Walk the woods feet Estonian Defence was not under force, or reactive Arshavin, or shifts in the center Bystrov, or connected from the depths of Titov. Flank attack just did not give any results, quickly and Anyukov constantly interfere with each other on the right, but are rarely Bilyalyatdinova, initially could not finish anything. Throwing balls into the crowd-foot Estonians, with a low attack and knocked down the sight Kerzhakov was absurd. For the entire first half, our team has not created any dangerous moment - just one hit in the range gate.

Much more dangerous than proved themselves wards Jelle Hus. First Oper goes one on one with Akinfeeva after blunder Ignashevich, but instead of trying to blow throw the ball and he is in the hands of Igor.

A few minutes later the next exit to the gate after the error of the same Ignashevich smacks Teever.

At the last minute of the meeting referee for demolition Kerzhakov appoint a dangerous free kick near the line of the penalty area. The distance to the gate 17 meters. Alas, there is now in our team someone who can carry out such a standard: no Esipova nor Karpin, nor Veretennikova, nor even Gusev Karyaka.

Champions among homeless

Kerzhakov last hit directly into the wall (after the break to replace Pavel Pogrebnyak). Then the whistle gave the signal for a break.

locker rooms, our players obviously got the nuts, and the team tuned up the tempo from the first minute of the second half. First, after a solo passage Arshavin ball hits the goalpost Poom, and then Vasily Berezutsky striking the crossbar. Estonians clung to their gates, but kept steadily before the first point less and less time.

Fifteen minutes before the end of Guus Hiddink is all in and produces a second striker. Instead of constantly transgress marriage reference Aldonin, the field appears ill fate of Estonians Dmitry Sychev. And after only three minutes, he begins to goal-scoring attack. Beautiful Assist Titov, Pavel Pogrebnyak scored in one-touch, his first goal in qualifying for Euro 2008.

Coach Estonians produces a triple substitution, but in vain. Leading Estonian defender Piroyya receives a red card and the final result a foregone conclusion. In the 90th minute, the old bunch Titov Sychev triggered again. Substitute Sychev opens an account with his Gholam Dutchman. 2:0

Luck Gus save Russia

PS: Our group situation for the Russian team hard, lost in the match with Israel and Croatia glasses, we hurt auknutsya autumn games against England. At the moment our team five points, while the four teams standing in front of seven.
