We will achieve better results in four years in Qatar,” Stanislav Cherchesov, coach of the Russian national football team, said. “And at the end of the day... Еще we proved that Russia is a football country. Thank you so much,” footballer Artem Dzyuba said. Russia lost 4-3 on penalties to Croatia in a quarterfinal shoot-out and is now out of the tournament.
