24.05.2022 0 By admin

July 7 is the date of perhaps the most important match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup between the national teams of Russia and Croatia. The result of the match will determine who will get into the semi-finals of the World Cup. All of Russia froze in anticipation!

Unfortunately, the Russian team failed to qualify for the semi-finals. In the main and extra time of the meeting, both teams exchanged goals and the score was 2:2, and in the penalty shootout, the Croats turned out to be stronger – 4:3.

Russian celebrities supported our team before the match and during it. Also, the stars did not forget to thank our football players for playing at the World Cup!

Attention: our selection will be updated!

The next day after the game, on July 8 at 16:00, a meeting with the Russian national football team took place in the fan zone on Sparrow Hills! Everyone could come and support our players after yesterday’s match.

Unforgettable experience😍 Dear fans, thank you for such a warm welcome, it was incredible!🇬🇧

Sergei Ignashevich

That’s all. It is very difficult to realize what it was… There is an endless stream of messages on WhatsApp and Instagram, and there is no way to say Thank you to everyone for the kind words. Thank you all! I could not even imagine that I would end my football career on such a high note! I am happy that I have been a part of this team, this coach, and our football country for almost 20 years! I hug you tightly. Sergei Ignashevich.

Natalya Vodyanova

I am grateful to our team for this match! The first goal was fabulous, and the second one just blew his head off and completely lost his voice. The Croatian brothers also played with dignity, luck smiled at them today a little wider than us. And although we lost in roulette on penalties, it still feels like our team has shown the whole world what we can do when we really want to.

Polina Kitsenko

I’m lying in a puddle of corvalol. Pain? Not at all. Happiness! Today the whole world has learned that Russia is not just a World Cup country. Russia is the country of key world football, and our team is one of the best in the world. What they showed is not even a battle, it’s a textbook game from a textbook. Stanislav Salamovich said that ours played, not fought, beautiful football with an exceptional team. The guys didn’t lose.

Anna Shulgina

I can’t leave yet!❤️🇬🇧
Until this summer, I could not even imagine how much our football is alive, and even so much competitive! I have no doubt that we could be in the 1/2, but the penalty lottery. We showed the whole world that we must be reckoned with here too! Thanks to the coach for such men! @teamrussia We have never had such football! Pride and tears of happiness!


Nadya Ruchka

The final is not in our favor. But what a game! Strongly!! A bit sad, but… Guys, we are proud of you🇬🇧!!! Great viewing pleasure!

Mariya Kozhevnikova

It hurts, yes, it hurts, yes. When just a little bit is not enough to win, when a mistake is a defeat! Guys, our @teamrussia team, thank you 🙏🏻 You made me feel sick, worried, for the first time I consciously wanted to attend a football match and cheer for you! You fought, fought, it inspires respect and gratitude! No disappointments, today I felt self-giving even through the TV screen. The main thing is that you did not deceive us, the fans!!! You played better than you could!

Vladimir Kristovsky

I congratulate everyone on such a beautiful game of our team in this championship! Well done guys! Fight to the end! Bravo!

Our dear football players, thank you for giving us those feelings that we have not experienced for a long time: the feeling of unity of the nation not in relation to the feat of our grandfathers, but in relation to the deeds of our contemporaries. Kudos to you for this. We are happy. Millions of your compatriots. You must know this. We were very worried, and this photo is evidence of this, but you are great fellows, I bow to you.
