"Disgraceful, there are no words". The Russian national soccer team saved from humiliation in the final seconds of the match with the 59th team in the FIFA rankings
The Russian national soccer team drew with Qatar in a friendly match. The match in Doha ended with the score 1:1.
Unlike the previous two matches with the Egyptians, where Russia was represented by young and little-known players, Valery Karpin brought the elite of Russian soccer to the meeting with the 59th team in the FIFA ranking.
However, the Russian Federation squad was unable to demonstrate anything in the match against the hosts of the World Cup 2022.
The well-trained and disciplined Qataris were noticeably superior to the guests, who noticeably lacked speed and chemistry. The weak midfield was particularly striking.
In the 70th minute, Qatar scored the first goal after a wing pass. The winning score was kept until the last seconds, when after a corner kick the Russian team managed to avoid humiliation.
In comments, Russian fans assessed the performance of their compatriots with the words "Disgraceful, no words" and "Incredible wretchedness".
