Finland vs. Russia: forecasts and preview
In case there was any doubt, the Finnish coach, Markku Kanerva, recalled that three points do not guarantee qualification for the round of 16 and that the ‘Huuhkajat’ (real owls) have not yet fulfilled their dream.
The Scandinavians are aware that they were lucky against the Danes, who were stunned by Christian Eriksen’s fading and conceded a goal on the only occasion available to the opposing team.
But they want to take advantage of the gift to go as far as possible. As it happened in the Copenhagen match, against the Russians they will also play in their rival field, Saint Petersburg.
While, Russia They need to introduce changes in the team, as the defeat against the ‘Red Devils’ left coach Stanislav Cherchesov many doubts, the subject of harsh criticism in the press, both for his tactics and for the choice of the starting eleven.
“The criticism was absolutely deserved. Now we want revenge “he said at the press conference.
The first doubt in Russia is the goal. Shunin, who did not convince anyone as a starter, was insecure and failed. Akinféev, the hero of the penalty shoot-out against Spain in the World Cup, is not an alternative, since he left the national team three years ago, but Safónov, the Krasnodar and U21 goalkeeper, is.
The defense has less solution. Seménov did not measure up, but the third center-back, Kudriashov, has just returned to training; Divéev is not one hundred percent; and Dzhikiya is in cotton wool, as Cherchesov admitted.
Perhaps the solution is to play a more open football in which the long wingers, the best of the Russian team, can reach the baseline to feed Dzyuba, who barely received any balls in the first game.
That role can be played by Mario Fernandes on the right and Karaváev on the left, as, according to Cherchesov, veteran Zhirkov is very likely to miss the remainder of the Eurocup due to a muscle injury.
