#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. 16 players have been invited to the training camp of the Russians, which will be held in Krasnogorsk near Moscow, all of them represent the Russian Super League.

Most of the players were delegated to the national team by the last year’s champion of Russia – the Communist Party of the Russian Federation FC (five people). In addition, four Gazprom-Ugra players, three players from Sinara and one from Tyumen went to Krasnogorsk. Goalkeeper Nikolay Balashov and field players Ruslan Kudziev, who is now leading the championship’s goal scorers race, and Danil Kutuzov, who recovered from an injury, joined the camp of the national team from the Norilsk Nickel FC. The training camp will last in Krasnogorsk until December 5.

We add that according to the results of the draw, which took place on September 2, the rivals of the Russians in group 2 were the French and the Georgians. Another opponent of our team will be determined by the results of the play-off matches between Armenia and Bulgaria. The group qualification round of the European Championship 2020 starts in December.

As This Is Taimyr wrote earlier, Norilsk Nickel FC lost on aggregate to the 1/4 finals of the Russian Cup and stopped fighting for the trophy. In the championship the Norilsk people hold the third place.
