Moscow, April 9 – Vladimir Fedotov, head coach of the Russian army team, said that the goalkeeper and captain of the CSKA Moscow football club Igor Akinfeev is preparing for the next match of the Russian championship.
On Sunday, for health reasons, Akinfeev missed the match of the 22nd round of the Russian Premier League (RPL) against Khimki near Moscow (3: 0). He was replaced by 19-year-old Vladislav Torup, who played for CSKA in the RPL for the second time in his career and for the first time this season.
“In Khimki, there was a change of coach and style. We thought for a long time and wondered what the new coach would come up with, although it is difficult to change something in a week. It happened. But after the goal, everything worked out. We began to confidently control the course of the match. Then we scored the second goal, after which we finally came to our senses. In the second half, we only scored one goal, although we can still increase the advantage, “said the coach. .
