FIFA sets up Russian national team ahead of the match with the hosts of the World Cup-2022
The friendly match between the Russian national team and the team of Qatar, which will be held on September 12, will not be taken into account in the international ranking. Representatives of the aggressor country managed to find a sparring partner after a long search, but the match itself will not be officially recognized.
This was stated in a commentary to the RIA Novosti propaganda news agency by the Russian Football Union (RFU). The organization referred to the International Football Federation (FIFA).
"The Russian national team's match against Qatar will not go to the credit of the FIFA rankings," the RFU said. The meeting itself will be held at the Al-Janoub stadium in Al-Wakrah, which hosted the 2022 World Cup matches.
The Russians will play two more matches with the Olympic team of Egypt in September, which was called a "benchmark disgrace". In addition, fans mocked the decision of Valery Karpin, who called 49 players to the training camp of the national team.
The national teams of Egypt, Bahrain and Oman refused to play against representatives of the Russian Federation. Russian clubs are suspended from the Champions League, UEFA League and Conference League, while the national team is excluded from the qualifying tournament for the European Championship-2024 and the Nations League.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the new uniform of the Russian national soccer team was mockery online. Fans suggested adding "Z letter and the portrait of the national leader on the chest".
