Well, in principle, that sounded: children will play and all that stuff… of Course, if 18 years of age is dangerous to play football and participate in the fighting is okay, then I wash my hands. Football has changed so much, it became a very scary sport,” said Fedotov in the air “Match of the Premier”.




“Sochi” refused “Rostov” in porting the game 23rd round of RPL, despite the fact that the entire core team of the Rostov region has been quarantined due to the discovery of coronavirus from six players.
