Russian national team coach Stanislav Cherchesov in his interview with press service of the Russian Football Union stated that Russia strives to be a real host country at World Cup 2018.
- We are building a team at each of our training camps as there is nothing permanent and lasting forever. Some players have to sit out due to injuries and physical conditions. And some get into a better shape and have to be noticed. It is also important that a player fits with us as a personality. This is the only way to build a competitive team. And we strive to be a real competing host country at World Cup 2018.
