Former captain of the Russian national football team Roman Shirokov commented on the defeat of the youth team against the French national team in the match of the second round of the group stage of the 2021 European Football Championship among players under 21 years old.

“I would not say that everything is bad. Russia itself lost this match. The French are generally outsiders, they could not create anything for us from the game. We, perhaps, also played far from the best match, played somehow nervously. If we had realized the first moment, we would have won the match. And so there were many simple mistakes, in the first penalty there was an inaccurate selection, then immediately the second … It is clear that the ball accidentally hit the hand, Maslov did not want to play with his hand. And then there were half-moments, but they could not bring it to the end, “- quotes Shirokov’s words” Championship “.

He noted that the logical outcome of the match would be a draw.

“The French are really bad, they can’t do anything. Unfortunately, we lost to such a team. Maybe individually they are somewhere stronger, but in terms of the game we definitely shouldn’t have lost to them, ”added Shirokov.
