National team players cubes flew to the match with Russia V Volgograd without the necessary boots. This was announced by the Secretary General of the Cuban Football Association Miguel Angel Diaz, his words are quoted “Match TV”.
“The question of the right boots arose. We have synthetic fields; as a rule, the lawn is not so wet, and therefore we use boots with short studs. When we arrived in Russia, we realized that we needed different shoes to play the match,” Diaz said.
According to the functionary, the team had to buy equipment directly in Volgograd. “The quality was not as important as the characteristics of the shoes in order to be able to play football normally on such a lawn,” Diaz noted.
Friendly match Russian national teams and Cuba will take place on November 20 in Volgograd at the Volgograd Arena stadium. The meeting is scheduled to start at 19:30 Moscow time. Cubans occupy 169th place in the ranking International Football Federation (FIFA).
