Finland v Russia | UEFA EURO 2020
Finland, which plays its first European Championship, isn't happy with the astounding triumph against Denmark right from the start and needs to keep impacting the world forever against a head down Russia, who goes to the game with water up to their necks subsequent to being beaten by Belgium.
In the event that there was any uncertainty, the Finnish mentor, Markku Kanerva, reviewed that three focuses don't ensure capability for the round of 16 and that the "huuhkajat and rdquor; (imperial owls) has not yet satisfied his fantasy.
The Scandinavians know that they were fortunate against the Danes, who were staggered by Christian Eriksen's blurring and yielded an objective on the solitary event accessible to the adversary group.
However, they need to exploit the blessing to go quite far. As it occurred in the Copenhagen match, against the Russians they will likewise play in their adversary field, Saint Petersburg. The plan will be for all intents and purposes something similar. The entire group behind the ball; exploit a set piece and fabricate a counterattack behind the sluggish Russian guard.
Kanerva conceded today that it merits the draw and that the guard should rehash the superb presentation of Copenhagen, yet in addition that they should improve in assault. Finnish focus backs Arajuuri and O'Shauhnessy are over 1.90 tall, so they shouldn't struggle halting the greatest neighborhood hostile danger, Zenit's monster forward Artiom Dzyuba.
Pohjanpalo, creator of the put out bits of the lone objective against the Danes, showed that it is an assurance. Be that as it may, the incredible any expectation of the Finnish assault remains Teemu Pukki (Norwich), who looked somewhat corroded on Saturday in the wake of being harmed for a very long time.
In the mean time, Russia needs to present changes in the group, since the loss against the "red fallen angels and rdquor; He left the mentor, Stanislav Cherchesov, the subject of unforgiving analysis in the press, both for his strategies and for the decision of the beginning eleven. "The analysis was totally merited. Presently we need the rematch and rdquor;he said at the question and answer session.
The primary inquiry is the objective. Shunin, who didn't persuade anybody as a starter, was unreliable and fizzled. Akinféev, the saint of the punishment shoot-out against Spain in the World Cup, is anything but another option, since he left the public group three years prior, however Safónov, the Krasnodar and U21 goalkeeper, is.
The safeguard has less arrangement. Seménov didn't have the right stuff, however the third community back, Kudriashov, has recently gotten back to preparing; Divéev isn't 100%; and Dzhikiya is "in cotton fleece," as Cherchesov conceded.
In the event that Cherchesov needs more profundity in assault, he could eliminate one of the guarded midfielders, Ozdóev or Zobnin, and settle on Kuzyáev, an all inclusive player who was subbed after thirty minutes against Belgium for a blow with Castagne, who endured a twofold crack in the face.
Atalanta's left-hander, Alexéi Miranchuk, substitute against the Belgians, will likely likewise have his beginning chance. Unmistakably Alexandr Golovín (Monaco) can't convey the full weight of obligation in assault.
