WC 2018: Ex- Manchester United ace slams Russia team

13 Jun 2018, 13:40

Former Manchester United star Andrei Kanchelskis has described Russia's World Cup team as the worst he has seen in his lifetime.

Stanislav Cherchesov's side kicks off the finals on Thursday against Saudi Arabia at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow before facing Egypt and Uruguay in their remaining Group A matches. There is little optimism surrounding the host nation's chances of reaching the latter stages, though, with Russia winless in their last seven games and ranked 70th in the world by FIFA, the lowest of any of the World Cup competitors.

Kanchelskis, who played for the Soviet Union and later chose to represent Russia, thinks problems within their football set-up have taken their toll.

"We had a traditional system. When the USSR broke up, our football went down. Now the level of Russian football is not great. Now there are problems. We are worried because it is the worst Russian team I have seen in my life. Everybody says it," Kanchelskis said.

The 2018 World Cup kicks off on Thursday as host Russia takes on Saudi Arabia.
