Conference League stories, where everything and the opposite of everything happens at the dawn of the Europa League “cousin”. After all, unlikely challenges can generate original unexpected events. The protagonists of the story, the Rubin Kazan club engaged in the qualifying round against Rakow, the Polish team. The Russian team returned to play in Europe after a rather long period of absence. To be precise, as reported by the company’s Twitter profile, Rubin reappeared in an international competition after 5 years, 7 months and 26 days.
UNFORGETTABLE – Evidently the thrill of returning to the European stage pulled a bad joke on Rubin. The return to the international arena has not gone unnoticed. Impossible that it was, considering that the match on the field of the Poles, which ended at 0-0, left a legacy of a more unique than rare event. The numbers of the Russian team were written … by hand.
FLAW – It must have been the heat, or more likely a mistake by those who had the task of preparing the jerseys. The only certainty is that the numbers on Rubin’s shirts did not, in any way, remain where they should. That is, glued to the shirt. And therefore, in an attempt to carry out the game anyway, we opted for a certainly unorthodox but undoubtedly effective method. Markers in hand, the staff took care to draw on the back of each shirt the number corresponding to the slip given to the referee. Original but also the only possible way to remedy the inconvenience and bring home the 0-0. Not an exciting result but all in all positive, especially in relation to the not excellent return of image for what happened on the field.
IRONY – In the direct text of the challenge, through the official profile, Rubin Kazan has managed with undoubted irony the original unexpected event, celebrating himself for having brought an ink marker to the bench, which has become an accessory for technical notes to an indispensable element for the match.
