“I believe that the RFU and the Ministry of Sports should interact on an ongoing basis with FIFA and UEFA and other international sports organizations on the return of our sport to the international arena,” Gazzaeva quotes Sport24.

He also emphasized that this goal should be approached in stages. According to him, it is worth making a proposal to allow the Russian team to qualify for the World Cup and European Championship. He also added that after that it is necessary to seek the return of the clubs.

“To return at least the national team would be the right decision of UEFA and FIFA. The RFU needs to raise this issue at the next FIFA congress, ”concluded Gazzaev.

On September 20, the Russian Football Union announced that the Russian team would not take part in the draw for the 2024 European Championship.

The draw for the qualification of the group stage of the qualifying tournament will be held in Frankfurt on 9 October.

Previously, honored figure skating coach Tatyana Tarasova reacted to the exclusion of the Russian national team from Euro 2024.
