"The motto 'focus on the journey, not the destination' was invented by losers," said Olimp Moscow coach Vladimir Aleshkin as the Russian side eye glory at the finals in Veneto.

Olimp Moscow are based in Fryazino, a hub of the Russian electronics industry just over an hour's journey by train from Moscow. The team was assembled from local clubs like FC Kolomna, FC Dmitrov, FC Zorkiy Krasnogorsk and FC Olimpik Mytischi, with the majority of the players aged under-25, and several working as youth coaches. Sergei Orlov and Roman Asadov caught the eye with nine goals between them in qualifying, and coach Vladimir Aleshkin believes in his side. "We are dreaming of winning the Regions' Cup," he said. "We are very ambitious. The motto 'focus on the journey, not the destination' was invented by losers. We are fighters and want to win every game."

Coach: Vladimir Aleshkin
Once an FC Spartak Moskva trainee, the former midfielder took charge of Olimp three years ago after a spell on the staff at FC Istra.
