MOSCOW, 14 Nov — Spartak midfielder Ruslan Litvinov answered the question of whether he is sad because of the removal of the Russian team from international competitions.
Litvinov for the first time received a call to the national team for friendly matches with the national teams of Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The team of Valery Karpin will play with the team of Tajikistan in Dushanbe on November 17, and on November 20 they will meet with the Uzbek team in Tashkent.
