Russia Statement

Valery Karpin, coach of the Russian national team, spoke ahead of the clash against Cyprus: "Georgy Dzhikia will train today, so he will be ready to play tomorrow."

"Rifat Zhemaletdinov will not be able to take part in the match. We have not called up anyone, because we have taken 25 field players for this training camp, taking into account that someone can drop out. It is more than enough. We had a bitter experience at the first training camp, when we called up 21 players, so we did it differently."

"We received the status tests of the players, I can't say that everything is great, but it's okay. Some are better, some are worse. Naturally, those who have played a lot of games, like Dzhikia, have accumulated fatigue. But overall, it's not a disaster. Everyone is normal."

"We haven't had a chance to get to know the pitch yet, as it was being prepared for the match. And now the Cypriots are training on it. After the press conference, we will have a training session about it."

"Cyprus is not considered a big team, but all teams of this type know how to defend. They play with a 5-4-1 formation. It's not easy to attack against them and find space. Naturally, they will rely on counterattacks. In the last game, after Malta, they came out of defense through short passes and had problems on set pieces. There is nothing specifically new to say, I think it will be more or less the same as it has always been."
