European Championship, 2nd round
Finland – Russia
The first round turned out to be emotionally rich for the teams. The Finns watched live as doctors saved Christian Eriksen's life. After that, they returned to the field and snatched from the even more shocked Danes their debut victory at the Euro. And they are in a good mood and with good points to play with the Russians. A positive result in today's match will practically give them a place in the playoffs.
The Russian national team is the favorite of the match "on paper". Such were the Danes. But with such a game, which the Russians showed in the match against Belgium, they have nothing to catch at the Euro. Cherchesov's wards themselves gave the opponent to score and it seems that they agreed to defeat before the match. Given the problems with the implementation and the game at their gates, the match with the Finns becomes the main one for Russia.
Head coach of the Russia national football team Stanislav Cherchesov:
"We helped the Belgians ourselves. We started the game well, but then made a misfire. There was a disappointment after that. Of course, there are no mistakes in football. It is a shame to miss such goals, but we have to keep playing. My team must have a character that nothing affects. The fact that we will now receive a dose of criticism is absolutely fair."
The national football teams of Finland and Russia played each other four times. The historical advantage is completely on the side of the Russians - 4 wins and only one conceded a goal. The last time the teams crossed paths in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers was when Russia won 3-0 twice.
