Russia looked destined to miss out on automatic qualification to Euro 2016 until they beat Sweden 1-0 in Moscow. This ignited the Russians who went on to win their last three group stage matches to book their place in France. The Russians finished on 20 points and second in the group behind Austria to book their place at this summer’s biggest sporting competition.
After making a disastrous start to qualifying ex-England manager, Fabio Capello, was relieved of his duties and replaced by Leonid Slutsky. He managed to turn their campaign around and a revitalised Russia will be hoping to carry that momentum into the Euro 2016 finals. They have a strong squad with plenty of european experience and they are generally an entertaining side to watch. Bag your Russia Euro 2016 tickets here at Football Ticket Pad for all games that the Russians participate in during the Euros.
Russia got off to a flying start under Capello with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Liechtenstein. However, this was followed by three games without a win to put their qualification hopes in doubt after two 1-1 draws against Sweden and Moldova, before a damaging 1-0 defeat at the hands of Austria in Vienna.
Russia were then awarded a 3-0 victory away to Montenegro after the match was abandoned in the 67th minute after crowd violence and a scuffle between players when the score was 0-0. Earlier in the match, Russia goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev was struck by a flare which caused a 33-minute delay and Akinfeev being stretchered off the pitch.
Russia then fell to a 1-0 defeat to Austria in Moscow to allow the Austrians to stretch their lead at the top of the group. Artyom Dzyuba goal then got a vital three points against Sweden before Russia cruised to a resounding 7-0 victory over Leichtenstein with Dzyuba scoring four under new boss Leonid Slutski, following Capello's departure.
This was the start of a three match winning streak where Russia went on to claim two more vital wins against Moldova and Montenegro to secure second place in the group ahead of Sweden who were two points behind in third, who eventually qualified through the play-offs.
Sergei Ignashevich has well over 100 caps for Russia and will likely be captaining the side at Euro 2016. He is a real leader for the Russians and his experience will be invaluable. The CSKA Moscow defender Former Chelsea man Yuri Zhirkov is also a stalwart in the Russia team and we can expect to see him marauding down the left flank. They have Igor Denisov in midfield, who has over 50 caps to his name, and who pulls the strings for them and is one of their main creative threats..
Artyom Dzyuba. With eight goals for Russia in qualifying the Zenit St.Petersburg striker is the figurehead of the Russian attack. He was in the provisional Russia squad for Euro 2012 only to then not be selected in the 23 man squad for the competition. He has reason therefore to want to prove himself on the international stage at a major tournament and at Euro 2016 may be his time to shine. The pressure will be on Dzyuba who is only one of three strikers in the 23 man squad. The experience of Aleksandr Kerzhakov and Yuri Zhirkov has been overlooked by Leonid Slutski and without Alan Dzagoev, who misses out through inury, the pressure is on Dzyuba to find the net.
One to watch out for
Aleksandr Golovin. The 19 year-old from CSKA Moscow is a raw talent emerging in Russian football and national coach, Leonid Slutski has taken a gamble on the youngster following the recent injuries to Alan Dzagoev, Yuri Zhirkov and Denis Cheryshev. The attacking midfielder has only recently broken into the squad and after scoring two goals in his three senior caps, including a goal on his debut versus Belarus in June 2015. Golovin will get a chance to shine in France and will look end his breakthrough campaign on a high this summer at Euro 2016.
Aleksandr Kokorin is only 24 but has bags of international experience. The striker is maturing as a player and will provide Russia with a real goal threat. The Zenit forward has scored three goals in the Euro qualifiers and has 11 goals in 36 games for Russia.
