Former head coach of the Russian national team Boris Ignatiev reacted to the defeat by Slovakia in the match of the third round of qualification of the 2022 World Cup.
At the same time, he noted that it was difficult for him to say why this happened. According to him, it is difficult to beat the Slovak team only at the expense of skill. The specialist also believes that the Russians lacked freshness in this meeting.
“Of course, we can talk about the background of fatigue after the games with Slovenes and Maltese. Despite this, we improved in movement in the second half, became faster when the smell of loss of points smelled. And then they again lost the position to the Slovaks: both Andrei Semenov and the others simply missed Robert Mack, ”Ignatiev said.
Russia lost to Slovakia 1: 2 on the road. Prior to this, Cherchesov’s wards beat Malta (3: 1) and defeated Slovenia at home (2: 1).
Earlier, the ex-coach of Zenit Vlastimil Petrzhela called the defeat of the Russian national team from Slovakia a sensation.
