— As for injuries, in my memory there is no early period with such abundance of tears of the cruciate ligaments , as it is now. Too bad that this fell Vasin, Djikia and Kokorin. But without injuries it is not possible – it is a pattern. Today these injured players but we know that very experienced head coach of Germany Joachim Leo. It is injured superwriter Manuel Neuer. So, as they say C’est La vie — such is football life.

Our first task is to qualify from the group. After this stage, the champion can not be no football power, which will arrive on tournament to Russia. We aim from game to game. Yesterday we had a technical Committee and head coach have included Ignashevich, is injured Kambalova. Ignashevich is a player with vast experience and I like man who can create a microclimate in the team supporting the defense… He can only wish good luck, good game. I have this information that Berezutskiy from returning to the national team has clearly declined. Cherchesov had contact with them. Ignashevich called as the team leader. Tells him experience. Of course, with faith in our team and wish her the best of luck!
