Tournament: FIFA World Cup, group stage, 2st round
Hosting the FIFA World Cup 2018, Russia is simply forced to fight at least for leaving the group into the playoffs stage. At the same time the level of rivals contributes to the team of Stanislav Cherchesov. The lack of official matches became the main problem for Russian national team before the tournament and in test matches the Russian football players didn’t shine with high game factors. Therefore Stanislav Cherchesov and the coaching staff were actively working on choosing the football players for the World championship.
Russia at World Cup 2018 has rather interesting squad. Together with expected players (Ignashevich, Akinfeev, Dzagoev and Smolov), there are such football players as Fernández, Rausch, Guilherme and Neustädter. Because of serious squad changes the game of the Russian national team suffers a little as it doesn’t demonstrate stability. In a match against Egypt Russia has to win but the rival is a hard nut to crack with the trumps on the football field.
This African national team always was a powerful player on its continent but at the World championships Egypt never showed good results. World Cup 2018 can become the beginning of a new era for Egypt at the international level as the current generation of football players of this national team has improbable potential.
Under the leadership of Héctor Cúper, Egypt has confidently passed the qualification cycle and steadily showed good results in test matches. The coach has a number of top-level football players: Salah, Sobhi, Elneny, Morsy, Hegazy, Elmohamady and Hassan.
