According to an article published in RIA Novosti, Dick Advocaat (Russian National Football Team coach) announced that Kirill Nababkin (CSKA Moscow Right Back Defender) will replace striker Artem Dzyuba and defender Magomed Ozodev in the squad.
The move comes after the friendly match between Russia and Uruguay ended in a tie. Each team had one point during the match but this does not appear to be the only reason for the change.
The same RIA Novosti article stated that Advocaat was forced to make changes within the squad in response to the loss of Roman Shishkin and Vasily Berezutsky by illness and injury. The decision by Advocaat to choose Nababkin left the latter surprised, according to RIA Novosti.
