The chief coach of Russian national soccer team, under whose leadership on 16 AUgust Russian team will play a friendlie with the team from Latvia, has shared his impressions over Russian championship. "I take private classes, but Russian language is very difficult. And until I know it pretty well, I am not going to speak on it. As for my first words to the players... Consider, I'll remind them that a new EURO 2008 is coming up, and that we have to unite our efforts and try to succeed. I'll tell'em they have to be proud that they got to defend the National colors. Thuogh I think all players understand it anyway. Then we'll start getting ready for the match against Latvia. It's not that much time left: on the first day platers
will recover from their club matches, the next day we'll devote to light trainings. I think in these two days we'll have enough time to know each other better. "Also it will be pretty interesting for me to take a look at your under 21 national team: this team is our future, and for me it's of a first importance to keep an eye on it", siad Hiddink to the official site of RFS. On a question what had he known about Latvia Dutch specialist replied: "I've seen the video with the last game of this team and I imagine what are they able on. But honestly, I'm more concerned not about them, but about our team. It's more important for me to find contacts with Russian players".
