The old football song about the main

March 2 2006

On the eve of the Russian football community witnessed its first match in the new year the national team. Originally, this game seemed a kind of "fly in the ointment" and "a scar on the heart" for the Russian fans, because of the lack of our World Championships in Germany to prepare for the Russians while not particularly need it. However, bitter experience at the time faded against the background of the person with whom we had to play. For the first time in a long time in Moscow granted the five-time world champion - against Brazil.

Hype before the match between Russia and Brazil has been enormous, and one of the main intrigue was the one to leave the field head coach of South Americans: their leaders or deep reserves. He showed respect for and released on the field almost all available to him the stars: Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Adriano, Emerson, Gilberto Silva, Juninho Pernambucano, Lucio and goalkeeper, known for their ability to score with the standard provisions Rogerio Ceni. Not enough unless the injured Ronaldinho, staff captain Cafu yes goalkeeper Didy. Did not come out on the field and the rising star of Real Madrid Robinho. But all the rest - seems to be assembled.

The Russians appeared on the field at all in service - Akinfeev, Anyukov, brothers Berezutsky, Ignashevich, Smertin, Loskov, Aldonin, Zhirkov, Kerzhakov, Arshavin. It was evident that our disposition - quite, quite militant. In contrast to the Brazilians - they played relaxed, according to the canons of friendly matches were woven lace near our penalty area. Akinfeev was rescued a couple of times, but at the 15 th minute and he was powerless. Roberto Carlos struck his trademark long-range kick, the ball the way he came first in the upper right hand Ronaldo dodges the ball, then - to the mound and, after catching Akinfeev to protivohode, flew into the net.

In what the Brazilians on the frozen field of the stadium "Locomotive" was playing and doing tactical communication constructs. Our also played in an official match, and this resulted in the fact that at the gates of the Brazilians began to be created dangerous moments. First, Vasily Berezutsky not hit the gate, closing the flow from a corner. Then entered into the penalty Alexander Kerzhakov powerfully struck in the near corner, but hit the bar. And the curtain of the first half of the meeting Arshavin led to the gate Loskova that otpasoval is in a passive offside Kerzhakov. The judge interpreted this episode as turning passive offside in an active and goal overturned.

In the second half, the Brazilians went on to solve their local problems, and the Russians still pushed up the pace, and in two cases were required to score. First, Alexander Anyukov broke on the right flank into the penalty area, and after a ricochet ball hit to the incident Vasily Berezutsky, but one with six or seven feet got into the goalkeeper. Andrei Arshavin then went one on one with the goalkeeper, beat him and laid the ball to his partner on "Zenith" Alexander Kerzhakov, who could only get in the gate, where stood a lone defender of the Brazilians. In it a St. Petersburg striker and hit. 0:1 - and Brazilians celebrate their victory in the match.

After the game, the main topic of conversation was the wrong goal is scored Ronaldo, who turned out victorious. That was - it was, and even the Swiss referee Massimo Busacca admitted after the match, my mistake. But the Russian team could rely on another result, which realizes Berezutsky and Kerzhakov their moments. In general, opened an old song - can not beat the most advantageous position. The game with Brazil has once again exposed the old trouble the Russian team, and over this to work the new coach of Russia.They may be the Dutchman Guus Hiddink, who managed to reach the semifinals of the World Cup not only with their compatriots, but also a team of South Korea (though the second - with a very questionable circumstances). But while Hiddink works with a team of Australia, to treat Russia's national team from the inability to sell chances on goal to Alexander Borodyuk.
