Lokomotiv forward Fyodor Smolov did not look so bright in the last RPL matches, so the coaching staff of the Russian national team preferred Artyom Dzyuba, Alexander Sobolev and Anton Zabolotny to him. This was stated by Stanislav Cherchesov after the announcement of the expanded squad for the 2020 European Championship. According to him, all three forwards perform different functions, despite similar physical characteristics. The specialist also explained the absence of Marinato Guilherme, pin up kz commented on Zenit's third championship in a row and talked about the conversation with Igor Akinfeev. I cannot give an exact answer to this question, I need to contact the head physician of the national team Eduard Bezuglov. But this factor was not taken into account. As far as I understand, it is already too late to get vaccinated, since three weeks must pass between injections. But on the other hand, a large percentage of called players have already been ill, which is good for us. We hope that this unpleasant moment will pass us by.
