Russia Coach Hails Team Over Saudi Rout, Dreads Egypt

Russia Coach Hails Team Over Saudi Rout, Dreads Egypt

Russia coach Stanislav Cherchesov has hailed his players for overcoming the pressure of playing the opening game of a FIFA World Cup by thrashing Saudi Arabia 5-0 on Thursday.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Cherchesov however pointed out that it will be a different game against Egypt on Tuesday. 

“I would like to underscore that we are grateful to our squad with how they fulfilled our goals, how they played in a relaxed game under the pressure stemming from this being an Opening Match. But Egypt will be a different game, city and stadium, We need to meticulously prepare ourselves,” he said.

Sometimes it’s a source of joy for the fans, sometimes less so. However, we are honest in what we are doing.

“I was relaxed yesterday and I’m relaxed today because I know my players. It is a pleasure to work with them. Every coach depends on the players, this is why I am relaxed.”
