Presumably, Russia will be the seeded team in the draw, that is, it will get into the top six.
Seven of the eleven possible opponents of the Russian national football team in the play-offs for a ticket to the 2022 World Cup, which will be held in Qatar, have been identified tonight.
Presumably, Russia will be the seeded team in the draw, that is, it will get into the top six. At this stage, the rivals of Russian footballers can be: Turkey (or the Netherlands, Norway), Scotland, Finland, North Macedonia (or Romania), Wales, Czech Republic and Austria.
At the second stage of the play-offs, the Russian national team can get to Serbia (Portugal), Poland, Sweden (Spain), Switzerland (Italy).
We remind that yesterday Valeriy Karpin’s wards lost in the final match of the qualifying tournament to the Croatian team with a score of 0: 1 and could not get through to the 2022 World Cup directly.
Now the Russian footballers have to play the play-offs, which will take place in March next year. The final list of possible opponents is currently unknown, since all the games of the last round have not yet been completed in groups C, D, G and I.
