Former CSKA Moscow coach Viktor Onopko commented on the defeat of the Russian youth team against the French team in the match of the second round of the group stage of the 2021 European Football Championship among players under 21 years old.
He noted that at the end of the match the Russian team did not manage to make a “bulk” on the French goal.
“Probably, we don’t have such players as in the main team for the bulk. Don’t be upset, France now has a very good youth team. We must beat Denmark with a certain goal difference. We have chances. You need to stick to your game. You need to adjust the line of defense a little, add a little patience and restraint. You could see diligence, desire, but they played differently from Iceland, but there was another resistance, ”Onopko added.
The meeting ended with a score of 2: 0 in favor of the French, who converted two penalties in the first half – in the 15th and 24th minutes.
According to the results of two rounds, the Russian national team takes the third place in the group, gaining 3 points. The French, also with three points, are second due to additional indicators. Denmark is in the lead – 6 points. Iceland is in fourth place with no points.
Earlier it was reported that, according to Shirokov, one cannot blame Maslov for the defeat from France at the youth Euro.
