“Why don’t you ask Southgate such questions? (England coach. – Note FAN) The press conference is over, I want to ask you one question. Is it fair to ask other coaches this? Why don’t you ask Southgate about the withdrawal of England and the US from Afghanistan? Queiroz is quoted by the Evening Standard.

In the meantime, Serbian fans held an action within the framework of the World Cup. Some citizens of the Balkan country came to the match against Brazil in the T-shirts of the Russian team, thus expressing support for the “brothers for life”.
