Head coach Alexander Kuznetsov:
“This selection camp involves players born in 2005 who had already participated in the Under-17 European Championship qualification last year.
It is necessary to have systemic development. For these purposes, the U-18 team was created. They are getting ready to the national team U-19.
I know these players well from the U-15 when we took part in the UEFA Development Tournament in Armenia and Bulgaria. It can be seen how the guys got stronger, they have a completely different experience of playing both in the youth team and for their clubs. Many of them play in the Second League, some of them are in the First League.
I would like to note that we are looking at a group of four players born in 2006 for the national team U-17, who will take part in the selection of the European Championship in Portugal in November”
