Uzbekistan national team will host Russia in another friendly match in November on November 20 at Tashkent’s Pakhtakor stadium.
According to a source, this encounter was organized under very strong political pressure.
It was announced earlier that Uzbekistan would be facing Kazakhstan on November 16 at 18:00 at the Pakhtakor stadium in a friendly after a 15-year hiatus. Russia will play Tajikistan on November 17 in Dushanbe.
The Russian national team, by decision of FIFA, was suspended from the UEFA Nations League, missed the qualifying match for 2022 World Cup with Poland, and will also not play in the qualifying round of the European Championship 2024.
