Cristiano Ronaldo might have taken the fizz out of Coca-Cola’s share price after shunning the soft drinks giant at a Euro 2020 press conference, but Russia manager Stanislav Cherchesov has no such concerns about the black stuff.
Russia boss Stanislav Cherchesov said his plan had worked after his side edged past Finland in St. Petersburg in their second match of Euro 2020, seeing off their dangerous opponents with a sensational strike by Aleksei Miranchuk.
Finland fans have been waiting a lifetime for their Euro 2020 adventure and the team head into their Group B clash against Russia in St. Petersburg with all the pressure on the hosts, according to former Finnish star Paulus Roiha.
Russia boss Stanislav Cherchesov has snubbed a suggestion that Olga Buzova, the pop star who was reduced to tears on TV after being challenged on her knowledge of the national team, could enter their inner sanctum at Euro 2020.
Russia manager Stanislav Cherchesov says it isn't his place to tell fans not to boo players taking a knee, after sections of the stadium in St. Petersburg were heard jeering when Belgian players performed the gesture.
Belgium are likely to be without winger Eden Hazard in their starting line-up for their opening Euro 2020 game against Russia, according to reports. The Belgians will also be without key playmaker Kevin De Bruyne.
