Еще,” Schmeichel said, noting that nobody could have predicted Russia would progress so far in the tournament. Talking about the performance individual players in the Russian team who “showed themselves to the world,” the goalkeeper commended Denis Cheryshev, Aleksandr Golovin, Igor Akinfeev, Mario Fernandes and Artem Dzyuba.
