The main result of the year for the Russian national team: we have a team, but sometimes this is not enough
This team of Leipzig was needed on the team of Stanislav Cherchesov.
The game against Germany happened very much. First of all, we had a very bad competitor, which is scarce for friendly games. The Germans were the first national crisis in several years, and the game in Leipzig was the first step in rehabilitation. It came to; the team Cherchesova in a weak constitution, the perfect anesthetic came.
The weak composition – the second moment. We all represent our base broadly, and without its many players it was interesting to appraise the forces against the backdrop of a strong and motivating opponent. Just compare yesterday's squad with the base for the game with Croatia in the World Cup: Akinfeev finished career in the national team, Samedov – finished Ignashevich After finishing with football – this is already a third of the list. Due to injury no Fernandez, Dziuba, Cherysheva a Golovinaand we must realize that they will not always be able to enter the field. Accordingly, World Cup heritage is not as much in terms of composition – in each game we can not count on a third or a half of that team.
The game, and after that, you want to admire our team again
We must finally understand which incredible efforts our team was worth in the 2018 World Cup. Many injuries are not coincident.
Kuzyaev It was the only player who came out in the beginning and then to Croatia, and now to Germany. The only one! At the same time, all the gambling experiences used by training staff and the national team in the summer and the early autumn in Leipzig were also looked at. This suggests we have a team. Yes, the result can depend on the presence of some players (for example, without Fernandez, the disproportionate right side we would not succeed), but football itself is clear to anyone in the national team. From this one can start.
But sometimes just having a team is enough, and there are third and fourth seconds here, why a meeting with Germany is important at the moment. Cherchesov sent to the start, perhaps, the strongest single player on the team – Alexey Miranchuk, and with whom to compare. The only problem is that Miranchuk could not stand the comparison. Not with them Zanethan with Gnbrythan with Brandtno more so with HaverzWho, at the age of 19, showed with anxiety how to do so in an assault. The sad comparison of "ours" with "theirs" should bring us back to the ground in 2019: despite the great results in the Championships of the World, the main and practical is the only thing We have teamwork. Individually, we look gray.
Hush, haters! 0: 3 of Germany – it's even good
Egorov from Leipzig – that, although we have fallen on our knees ahead of the Germans, we still have a great team. Even with Ari.
And the fourth moment is motivation. As soon as it's sags, the Russian team gets a few powerful pits to the bar. In the game with Uruguay in the World Championships, we went to an organized team with performers above us strongly and live in this game as in battle after Egypt – we all remember & # 39 ; r result. In Leipzig, teamwork looked through, at times it was even desirable to watch the game, but the team's motivation was drunk to the bottom, as he all looked mechanical and anemotic, especially in the first half. After such a stormy year, hibernation of such 90 minutes is explained, but again it became clear: with organized teams with strong performers, it would be difficult and even harder to do this without any incentive incentive, because now they join us, as last quarter.
From the latest emotional and physical strength you need to get together to have an important match with Sweden. 0: 3 from the Germans in this regard – great and possibly the only way to find the June courage and the sincerity of the Russian team.
