Russia's national football team beat Hungary 3-0 in a friendly match on
Monday night in what has become its first thumping win at helm of ex-Soviet
goalkeeper Stanislav Cherchesov.
Russia's Fyodor Smolov and Dmitry Poloz scored goals at Groupama Arena
in Budapest in the 20th and 89th minutes, respectively. For the latter
it has become the first goal in the national team. Hungary's Marton Eppel
headed into his own net in the 40th minute.
Head Coach of the Russian national football team Stanislav Cherchesov
said he was satisfied with the match and expects more gain of function.
"This was no easy match. The latest official match was two weeks
ago. It took us rather long to get into the game, but then we gained a
well-earned victory," he said.
According to Russia's Deputy Prime Minister and President of the Russian
Football Union (RFU) Vitaly Mutko, "the team has put much effort,
and may be credited with the match.".
