All players of the Russian national football team at the 2014 World Cup were included in the list of Canadian professor Richard McLaren, who made a report on doping in Russian sports for WADA.

Previously, it was reported that only Igor Akinfeev, Denis Glushakov, Igor Denisov, Yuriy Zhirkov, Alexander Kokorin and Roman Shirokov were included to the list.

FIFA demanded a doping test of all players of the Russian team at World Cup.

"We received two requests: also we sent all the required information about the athletes to WADA, there are more than 20 people there," said Kamila Shafeeva, a RUSADA employee - this organization is supervising team sports.

On the website dedicated to the McLaren report, you can find a list of 24 people who passed the doping tests on June 3, 2014. It is worth noting that the list does not contain any positive doping tests.
