Russia - Holland 3:1, Euro 2008: match details

14 years of the main match in the history of our team! Caution: the test plunges into memories of better times.

The summer of 2008 was one of the most memorable and brightest – all because the Russian team then gave the whole country real happiness. And so many years have passed, and we continue to remember that match with the Dutch: perhaps, in terms of emotions in our football history, something plus or minus was close only after the victory over the Spaniards in Luzhniki in 2018. What happened on June 22, 2008 still cannot be compared with anything: the streets of Moscow, St. Petersburg and other cities of Russia did not subside until the very morning – the people were buzzing and celebrating a resounding victory and guaranteed medals. And the quotes of the commentator Georgy Cherdantsev, for example, about Arshavin, who “maybe” and who “well, this is a genius!” fans of the national team still remember.
