"They showed to the whole world": Russian national team players were called a disgrace to the country after the fiasco in the game with Kenya
Russian national team players literally disgraced the aggressor country by failing to beat Kenya, which is ranked 109th in the world rankings. At the same time, coach Valery Karpin mocks the fans by summoning 45 players to the training camp.
Evgeny Lovchev, a bronze medalist at the 1972 Olympic Games, wrote about this in anger on his Telegram channel. The legendary Spartak Moscow footballer criticized the national team for its attitude to sparring amid the suspension of international competitions.
"We keep discussing the same thing with our suspension - how do FIFA and UEFA behave? And how do the players of the national team behave when they show such football as with Kenya? Did we show the whole world that we were banned, and we are so strong and will now show everyone? No, on the contrary, we were not very good, and we got even worse. We have to stand up for the country, not disgrace it. I'm addressing Karpin directly - stop fooling us by putting a different lineup every time, everyone is already aware of the Russian names in the HRC," Lovchev said.
Earlier, Russian national team and Dynamo Moscow player Daniil Fomin was unable to answer the question of why teams from Russia were excluded from international tournaments.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, on October 12, the Russian national team narrowly beat another African team, Cameroon.
