Karpin took the blame for the defeat of the Russian national team in the match against Croatia

The head coach of the Russian national football team, Valery Karpin, spoke about the results of the match with Croatia in the selection for the 2022 World Cup. The mentor considers himself to be guilty of the team’s failure.

The meeting of the qualifying tournament of the FIFA World Cup ended in favor of Croatia with a score of 1: 0. At the same time, the team did not score a single goal against the Russians: they lost because of an annoying own goal. Now the national team will have to play in play-offs to advance to the next stage of the championship. At the same time, the Croats won the right to go directly to the competition in Qatar.

Karpin readily accepted the blame for the consequences of the game. The mentor said that the team has a lot of work to do.

“My fault, 100%. Our footballers at the level of the Croatian national team can look much better. We need to work in all directions, ”Karpin said.

The Russian national team was in second place in the table of players and won 22 points. The only goal was scored by Fedor Kudryashov in the 81st minute of the match.
