Unexpectedly weak first half

The rival of our team was the national team of Kyrgyzstan. Such a long downtime could not but affect the Karpin team. The starting line-up was very different from the memorable match against Croatia. Three debutants came out at once: Roman Yezhov and Alexander Kovalenko escalated the situation at the opponent’s goal, and Sergey Borodin was entrusted with cementing the center of defense.
Karpin confused all the fans and journalists with the choice of the captain. Previously, the one whom the coach brought to the press conference invariably came out with the captain’s armband. On the eve of the meeting, Daniil Fomin went to talk to reporters. However, he went to the game without a bandage, which went to Vyacheslav Karavaev.
There was concern that the recent suspension from the Euro 2024 draw would affect the team’s mood. However, Karpin’s gang went on the attack from the first minutes. Russia tried to aggravate through quick flank counterattacks, but it was not possible to complete these runs with blows. The hosts waited out the starting pressure and began to delight the local public with their dangerous attacks.
At first, the blows of the national team of Kyrgyzstan invariably took place next to the post. But such a solid advantage in this indicator over the Russians soon led to a logical result. In the middle of the first half, the hosts’ player Alimordon Shukurov succeeded in a chic blow. The ball from the bar flew into the gate of Matvey Safonov, who could not do anything in this case.

The missed goal cheered up our team, which immediately rushed to recoup and earned a penalty. It was calmly realized by Alexander Sobolev, spreading the ball and the goalkeeper in different corners. But it was not possible to really start up and arrange a bulk on the opponent’s goal.
The Russian national team was not better than the opponent in the first half and logically went to the break without an advantage in the score. The experimental line-up and the long absence of matches can hardly be called an excuse for such a nondescript game with not the strongest opponent.

Rostov bunch saved Karpin

For the second half, Karpin released a different squad, replacing almost all field players. Club links appeared on the field, which were supposed to open the defense of the hosts. The defense began to play more collected, but there was no total advantage in the first half of the half.
The brightest players of the Karpin team were Daniil Utkin and Nikolai Komlichenko. The Rostov guys understood each other perfectly, which resulted in several scoring chances. Nikolai never managed to realize two one-on-one exits with the opponent’s goalkeeper.

In the last 20 minutes, the Russians finally moved the game to the half of the field of the Kyrgyz national team. As a result, it was possible to put the squeeze on the opponent only at the very end of the meeting. The guys from Rostov created the moment again, whose bunch in the Karpin club rivets goals one by one. Only this time everything turned out differently – Komlichenko brought Utkin to the shock position, and he struck exactly at nine.
The victory turned out to be everyday and hardly left a good impression on Russian fans. Such a long wait for the national team resulted in not the brightest match with a weak opponent.

Uncertainty

It is not particularly clear who will be the next opponent of the Russian team. Earlier in Bosnia they announced that they had agreed to hold a friendly meeting with our team on November 19 in St. Petersburg. However, after this announcement, all Bosnian leaders refused to participate in the meeting. And local football officials began to call for abandoning the idea.
The Iranian national team is also named among the possible rivals. The Russian Football Union confirmed the negotiations. Although the matter has not yet reached an official agreement.
