The head coach of the Russian national football team Stanislav Cherchesov explained the team's loss in the match with Denmark at the European Championship by the pressure of the stands. The meeting took place in Copenhagen on June 21 and ended with a crushing score of 1: 4.

“I don’t know who beat us in the match with Denmark - the players or the Danish stands, their nation? By the way, our fans were not allowed there,” Cherchesov said at a press conference on Friday. His words are quoted by "Soviet Sport".

Recall that at the European Football Championship - Euro 2020, the Russian team showed not the best result. The team lost to Denmark, and also lost to Belgium with a score of 0: 3. The only victory was won in the match with the national team of Finland, but the only goal scored did not bring the team the required number of points to advance to the next stage. The Russians finished fourth in the group stage and left the tournament.

After a crushing defeat at the championship, an initiative group of football fans demanded that Cherchesov be fired. The fans intend to send a pre-trial claim to the RFU, and are also ready to go to court regarding the dismissal of Cherchesov.

The Russian Football Union (RFU) was dissatisfied with the work of the head coach , calling it unsatisfactory. At the same time, the union does not believe that the coach should be fired after the crushing defeat of the Russian national team in the championship. Cherchesov himself said that he had no plans to retire yet.
