Soccer: conquer a Russian Macedonia?

November 15 2006

Today, another hour of "X" for the team Huss Hiddink. In the Macedonian capital Skopje, the Russian national team meets with the owners of the field, headed by Srecko Katanets.

Selection cycle for the European championship for our team went wrong. In the first three home games the team scored just five points and finished only fifth place in Group E. Even fewer points only in football dwarfs: Estonia and Andorra.

Let us examine the number of matches in the national Premier League, "Huss probably experienced the disappointment. In domestic football, more and more scandals, but the treaty games are not written except that lazy. Atmosphere in the team certainly tense, because the main collections - are players CSKA and Spartak leading a relentless struggle.

At this time in the first team was not invited Marat Izmailov and Alexander Kerzhakov, apparently due to poor play in the national championship. Kerzh likely to leave St. Petersburg club at the end of the season. No national team have already played their best years Dmitry Loskova and Vladislav Radimova.

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

Football: Russia will not work on European Championship 2008

In the national team was summoned several young players. It is surprising that almost all of them were not on the leading roles in their teams. In addition to "open season" Roman Shishkin, a permanent seat on the composition have no Torbinskiy nor Rebko nor Taranov. I will dress in Skopje these players jersey main team of the country is unknown, but the "whiff of gunpowder".

And still our coach should think not only about the prospects, but also about this. And so it has not recovered from the trauma of the leader of the Russian line of defense Sergei Ignashevich and replace it will have Denis Kolodin, player's one of the weakest teams in our championship "Dynamo" (14th place out of sixteen teams at the Premier League "). The absence among the "collections" defender "Zenit" Anyukova caused by trauma and for unknown reasons did not call the match wagon Alexei Smertina can predict that the defense will come brothers Berezutsky, Kolodin and Shishkin. Other choice Huss is not there.

Already at the training camp in Sochi recovered from the disease through the midfield players Andrei Arshavin and Yegor Titov. Most likely they will take to the field in the first team. Both the end of the championship are in great shape and today are best played out in the country. It is unknown whether our coach would dare to play two forwards, or go with one, as in the games against Israel and Croatia. Available: Dutch, besides those already mentioned players were: Evgeni Aldonin and Yuri Zhirkov (both - CSKA), Diniyar Bilyaletdinov (Lokomotiv Moscow), Vladimir Bystrov (Spartak Moscow), Igor Denisov (Zenit) and Igor Semshov (Dinamo ") in midfield. Roman Pavlyuchenko (Spartak Moscow), Pavel Pogrebnyak ("Tom"), Ivan Saenko (Nuremberg, Germany), Dmitry Sychev (Lokomotiv Moscow) in the attack. Over the last line again will be responsible guardian of the gates "army" Igor Akinfeev.

Prospects for a way out of our team with each match less. Even if today we will win, and our direct competitors are teams of Israel and Croatia will play in a draw, change it a bit. Weak start under the guidance of Hiddink goes around comes around us in the autumn of next year, the Trust snapped Dutch law no longer have.

In Macedonia, where there is an unprecedented football hype, Russia will have a difficult life. Balkan for the first time in its history started so well: two wins and a draw with the founders of British football.Yesterday Trust Srecko Katanetsa admonished Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and the players, many of whom serve in Germany, will try to live up to their expectations.
