In a friendly match, the Russian team should treat the Kyrgyz team with respect. Former Spartak, Lokomotiv and Russian national team midfielder Alexander Samedov announced this to RBC Sport.
“I don’t think we should expect defeat in the match against Kyrgyzstan. In this situation, there is no choice. Our team must treat the opponent with respect. In any case, the boys will be happy to play a match for the national team,” Semedov said.
Karpin responded to a question about the risk of players refusing to play for Russia.
On September 24, the Russian team will play its first match after the sanctions imposed by UEFA and FIFA. Karpin’s team will meet Kyrgyzstan’s national team in Bishkek.
At the end of February, on the recommendation of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), FIFA and UEFA suspended the Russian team from participating in international matches due to hostilities in Ukraine. As a result, the national team could not play in the play-offs and did not qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Also on September 20, the Russian team failed to qualify for Euro 2024 in Germany.
