MOSCOW, 12 July – Defender Fedor Kudryashov, in an open letter published on the website of the Russian Football Union, announced his retirement from the Russian national team and said that he dreamed of completing it at the World Cup, which will be held in Qatar.
Kudryashov is 35 years old, he was first called up to the Russian national team in 2016. Since then, he has made 48 appearances for the national team and scored one goal.

“I had a dream: to go to Qatar for the World Cup. For me, this would be a great ending to my career in the national team. After the tournament in Russia, I wanted to play one more. When Russia began to be excluded from everywhere, doubts appeared. Paralympians, I realized: there will be no matches, no World Cup. It turns out that even if my own goal had not happened in Split, Russia would still not have been allowed into Qatar,” Kudryashov wrote.

“In the end, I decided to end my career in the Russian national team. It’s a pity that I didn’t manage to do it differently. But it’s okay – there are moments more important than football. I’m already 35 years old, I need to be a realist. But I want to continue playing football as long as possible! Desires – the sea! God forbid, in addition to this season I will spend another two or three years. And there, maybe I will make it to 40, “added the player.
Also in an open letter, Kudryashov recalled his debut in the Russian national team, the 2018 World Cup, where, according to him, the Russians lost in the quarterfinals to the Croats “in the lottery”, the European Championship – 2020 and the qualifying tournament for the world championship in Qatar, where the Russian team lost all the same Croats in the decisive match of the group stage due to Kudryashov’s own goal. The football player thanked his teammates, everyone who worked in the national team with him, and the fans.
