Two weeks after his appointment, Leonid Slutski has named his first squad as Russia coach for the Group G qualifiers against Sweden and Liechtenstein. Most of his 24 players were regulars in the Fabio Capello era, though Slutski has drafted two potential debutants in 25-year-old midfielder Aleksandr Erokhin from Ural Sverdlovsk Oblast and 34-year-old full-back Oleg Kuzmin from Rubin Kazan. Also, CSKA Moskva defender Aleksei Berezutski and Dinamo Moskva holding midfielder Igor Denisov are restored to the fold.
