“The exit problem has been solved. I am pleased with how the team reacted to the game. Some technical issues, of course, remain. The main task is to win the European Championship. Entering the tournament was a local challenge. Still need to play with the Belgians in St. Petersburg. We fight for first place in the group. And we must not forget about the draw of the Euro. We’ll finish the group tournament, try to take first place, find out the opponents at the European Championships and we will prepare for them, ”Cherchesov said after the match.
The Russian team ranks second in qualifying group I, losing three points to the Belgians. The teams will meet on November 16 in St. Petersburg.
