The former head coach of the Russian national team appreciated the performance of the team captain Artyom Dziuba at the European Football Championship. It is reported by “Sport-Express”.
The specialist noted that he could not make claims to the football player, since he did his best both on the field and in training. Cherchesov recalled that Dziuba scored one goal in the tournament and gave one assist, and also won many riding martial arts.
Cherchesov also noted that Dziuba’s leadership in getting offside in the group stage does not mean anything. In his opinion, the superiority of the Russian over the competitors (seven against four for a group of players from other national teams) is insignificant.
Dziuba played three matches in the tournament, in which he scored one goal and gave one assist. The Russian national team took the last place in the group and was eliminated from the tournament. Cherchesov on July 8 was dismissed from his post as head coach.
