Forward of the Russian national football team Artem Dzyuba explained the devastating defeat from the Belgian team at Euro 2020. His words are quoted by the website of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).
The footballer said that the Russians started the meeting well and thought that they could achieve a draw. “But then a stupid mistake changed everything, and it was extremely difficult to return to the match with such a strong opponent,” Dziuba explained.
The forward noted that Romelu Lukaku, who scored two goals against Anton Shunin, “was probably shocked to see how the team was defending.” “We defended badly. Such good teams as Belgium do not forgive mistakes, ”Dziuba stressed.
