Everyone is drawn to Dziuba. How were the nine days of the Russian national team in Austria
Lots of jokes and “hardest training” in a player’s career.
The Russian national team has completed the Austrian stage of preparation for Euro 2020. Already today she will play the first friendly match of the summer – against Poland. The “Championship” was with the team all nine days of the training camp in Neustift. Let’s sum up the main results.
The final squad of the Russian national team for Euro 2020. Who will Cherchesov unhook?
Dziuba is an irreplaceable captain. Everyone on the national team is drawn to him
The first thing that immediately catches your eye is that Dziuba is the real leader of this team. And it’s not even about the game, but about Artyom’s influence on the team. The whole team is drawn to him and waits for his jokes, support and good mood. This is especially valuable during tough training. The players themselves confirm this with one voice.
“It is very important that there is such a person as Dziuba. He always maintains a positive attitude in the team, even when something goes wrong in training. Guys tense, coaches can push, and Artyom gives a discharge, ”- this is the opinion of Golovin. Diveev also agrees with Sasha: “Ask anyone who is in charge of the atmosphere, the answer will be the same – Dziuba. Just arrived, immediately the jokes began. Most of all I got carried away when he made fun of Dupa on the bus. I reminded him that he was the best in xG. There are a lot of jokes. At one of the workouts, Artyom shouted that someone was running slower than Ignashevich. It is very valuable that the team has such a captain. He brings the team together instantly, it’s cool. “
“Told Dziuba that he is the king of“ Tambov ”. Big interview with Golovin
Dziuba began to create an atmosphere from the very first day in Austria. At the first training session, he and Sobolev played somersaults. Challenge: who will score more into the small goal during the training exercise. Sobolev lost. A couple of days later, during a hard sprint training session, Artyom made a joke, which everyone laughed at: “You run slower than Ignashevich.”
In general, Dziuba is a real leader and, in fact, the team captain.
The training is brutal. Everything is done to ensure that the team flies to Euro
Personal impressions – these nine days were very tough. After training, many players said that this was one of the hardest training camps in their careers. On the very first day upon arrival in Austria, Cherchesov and his headquarters gave the team two trainings. After that, the workouts were one-off, but no less energy-consuming. The physics bookmark exercises were completely different. A large number of exercises were used in the jerk-stop format, as well as the game on a small field 3 by 3 with minimal stops and a break of 1.5 minutes between runs. After such training, the players literally crawled out of the field. But everyone in the team understands why this is being done.
Training would have been harder if not for Cherchesov’s fatherly encouragement. During the warm-up and physics exercises, the head coach calmly walks next to the players, jokes and supports the players, asks them not to be lazy.
It is unusually quiet around the national team before the Euro. No expectations = no problem?
But when it comes to football, Cherchesov already raises his voice, but he still does it with care. “Be patient, be patient, Denis. Who promised it would be easy? Now we are dying so that it will be easy later. ” So the coach turned to Cheryshev. At the very first training session Miranchuk heard in his address: “Yes, Lyosha, like that. Clever girl. ” Cherchesov is constantly with the team and confidently keeps his finger on the pulse.
It is worth writing separately that the national team, unfortunately, was not without injuries. Fernandez missed almost the entire training camp, who is worried about his groin. All this time, Mario worked on an individual program. Cheryshev, Sobolev and Zabolotny also missed part of the training due to minor health problems. But, according to Cherchesov and conversations in the team, there is no cause for concern. All players will be ready for the Euro. There are 11 days left before the first match with Belgium.
