Dmitri Khomukha
At this level, the lads are young and not fully developed physically. When they are tired, some technical elements aren't performed as well as they should be. We missed quite a lot of scoring chances because the tournament is long and you need a lot of physical strength to be successful. Our resources were not endless. We remained faithful to our style but we just had problems in converting our opportunities. We were not effective enough in attack.

• 4-3-3 with 4-2-3-1 variations; single or twin midfield screen

• Patient, cautious build-ups from back; long passes when pressed

• Wingers – usually Aleksandr Makarov (No7) and Aleksandr Zuev (No11) – use speed to run at/past full-backs

• Good crossing and cut-backs; dangerous at set plays

• Well-organised defending; very compact in central area

• Occasional high pressing; fast attack-to-defence transitions

• Disciplined unit with mental strength and strong team ethic
