After Spain and Sweden, Russia is also plagued by a positive player. Andrey Mostovoy tested positive for corona and was immediately replaced in the Russian selection by Roman Yevgenyev. Russia will be the Belgians’ first European Championship opponent tomorrow.
The Russian federation announced the bad news of the 23-year-old winger of Zenit. “Due to an unfavorable result of Andrey Mostovoj’s PCR test, the coaching staff has decided to replace him with Roman Yevgenyev.” The latter is a 22-year-old defender of Dinamo Moscow.
Mostovoj made his national team debut at the end of last year and has since collected 8 caps. He probably wouldn’t be a basic player at the European Championship. His replacement has only played international.
Russia and Belgium will face each other tomorrow evening (9pm) in Saint Petersburg.
