Russia head coach Stanislav Cherchesov has turned his focus to his side’s quarter-final clash after getting past Spain in the second round of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Hosts Russia defeated Spain 4-3 on penalties after full time and extra-time scores ended 1-1.
“Emotions are simple: I’m thinking only about the next game. That’s how it is,” Cherchesov told FIFA.com.
Cherchesov also ruled out Yury Zhirkov from his side’s next game but hinted the former Chelsea player could be ready for the final if Russia go all the way.
“I believe Zhirkov might have played his last game. Maybe he will only play in the final, if we get there. I had to replace him.”
