RUSSIA FOOTBALL HISTORY

The Russia national football team (Russian: Национа́льная сбо́рная Росси́и по футбо́лу) represents Russia in association football and is controlled by the Russian Football Union (Russian: Российский Футбольный Союз, Rossiyskiy Futboľnyy Soyuz), the governing body for football in Russia. Russia's home grounds are Luzhniki Stadium, Lokomotiv Stadium (both in Moscow), and Petrovsky Stadium in St.Petersburg. Russia qualified for three World Cups (1994, 2002, 2014), will host one in 2018 and four European Championships (1996, 2004, 2008, 2012). Euro 2008 marks the first time they have passed the group stages of a major tournament, these advances are not counting the Soviet Union national team. The suspension of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, reduced the group to five teams. Russia eventually qualified alongside Greece with six wins and two draws. Russia went to the USA to start a new era of Russian football as an independent country. Though not considered to be among the strongest teams in the tournament, Russia were seen as fierce opponents[citation needed]. The Russian squad consisted of veterans like goalkeeper Stanislav Cherchesov, Aleksandr Borodyuk and players like Viktor Onopko, Oleg Salenko, Aleksandr Mostovoi, Vladimir Beschastnykh, and Valery Karpin (some of these Russian players could have chosen to play for example the Ukrainian national football team but the Football Federation of Ukraine had failed to secure recognition in time to compete in the 1994 FIFA World Cup qualification).After Sadyrin was sacked, Oleg Romantsev was appointed coach to lead Russia to Euro 96. Romantsev was expected to qualify Russia for the final tournament and perform well. In his squad he selected many players from the 1994 FIFA World Cup like Viktor Onopko, Aleksandr Mostovoi, Vladimir Beschastnykh, and Valery Karpin. During qualifying, Russia overcame Scotland, Greece, Finland, San Marino, and the Faroe Islands to finish in first place with eight wins and two draws.
