The head coach of the Russian national football team, Valery Karpin, said that the players arrived at the location of the national team with a lower body fat. The footballers followed the nutritional recommendations recommended by the coaching staff.
“All the players followed our instructions, all arrived with less body fat. For example, Jikia, lost weight. As for the composition, I will say this: the loss of Golovin and everyone else is certainly undesirable, but whether it is critical or not, I will say after the game, “Karpin added.
Earlier, during the September training camp, the head coach of the Russian national team said that he had banned the players from consuming sugar.
Recall that on October 8, as part of the qualification for the 2022 World Cup, the Russian national team in Kazan will play with Slovakia, and on October 11 they will meet with Slovenia in Maribor.
Now, after six rounds of selection for the world championship, our team takes second place in group N.
