"Swing after swing" of the Russian national football team caused laughter on the Internet
The Russian national football team will play Kenya in a friendly match on October 16. After a long and unsuccessful search for sparring partners, representatives of the aggressor country offered to meet the 109th team in the world rankings, which provoked ridicule from fans.
The fans were especially excited about the venue of the game - a football field at a hotel in Turkey. "All the details regarding the organization of the friendly match have been agreed upon. The Kenyan and Russian national teams will play on October 16 in Antalya at the stadium of the Titanic Mardan Sports Complex hotel. We did not consider any other options and immediately agreed to hold a friendly match in Turkey," Barry Otieno, Secretary General of the Kenya Football Federation, told Sport24.
Readers of the Sports.ru website reacted strongly to this information. They ridiculed the Russian team, calling the upcoming match "some kind of disgrace."
"Swing after swing", "Why a stadium? You can put a goal on the beach and play there", "What a shame. How is a match with bottom Kenya more useful than a match against your own youth, for example, in Yekaterinburg?", "And after the match Agutin will sing so that tourists are not so sad after such a spectacle", "Do they want to play in my country house?", "Another geopolitical victory over the West!", "Soon the national team will go to play in clubs, and there it is not far from the apartment dwellers..." - they write in the comments.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, the former president of Moscow's Torpedo and Lokomotiv, Ilya Gerkus, demanded that the Russian Football Union (RFU) immediately join the Asian Confederation (AFC).
