Six stats behind Russia’s six steps

  • September 24, 2020


The number of players under the age of 25 named in Cherchesov’s 23-man squad for the Serbia and Hungary games: Aleksandr Sobolev (23), Anton Miranchuk (24), Zelimkhan Bakayev (24), Daniil Fomin (23) and Yegor Sorokin (24). Fair to say, then, that the coach puts great faith in experience, like that of 37-year-old Yuri Zhirkov, who started the match against Serbia. In fact, the average age of his last squad was 29, a stat only surpassed by Andorra (30 years).
