Three Bulls Have Capped for the National Teams
Three FC Krasnodar players capped for their national team in the relevant international fixtures that were staged under the aegis of FIFA from 20 to 22 March.
Centre-back Uroš Spajić was the first one to cap. His Serbia national team tied 1-1 in an away friendly game with Germany in Wolfsburg on 20 March. Spajić remained a full 90 minutes on a field play and displayed very confident and reliable performance.
Next day another black-green, FC Krasnodar team captain Aleksandr Martynovich, made an appearance on a football pitch. Team Belarus (where he is also a team captain) began their UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying career with an away 4-0 defeat to Netherlands. The Krasnodar centre-back played a full game.
Defensive midfielder Charles Kaboré captained his Burkina Faso national team on 22 March in a final clash of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification’s group stage. Les Étalons met Mauritania at home and beat them 1-0. Unfortunately for Kaboré and his partners, this success did not allow them to qualify for the Cup of Nations finals, since in another fixture of the same MD Angola beat Botswana away and finished in the second position after Mauritania. The Stallions took only third place in the standings.
