Former midfielder and captain of the Russian national football team Alexander Mostovoy explained why the national team did not play two strikers in the match with Malta at the start of the selection for the 2022 World Cup.
“With Malta you can play with two strikers and three. But we have a very large attacking midfield. Golovin and Miranchuk can be called semi-attackers. We have a lot of these players. Many asked: why not release Dzyuba and Sobolev together? But then we would have strayed to the same type of game. They would interfere with each other, because both are similar in terms of size. And the game of the national team would run into long passes, “Mostovoy said in an interview with RT.
Earlier, Mostovoy shared his opinion on the naturalization of foreign players.
