Russia Players Refused to Wear Their New Home Kit Against Belgium Yesterday

Russia‘s players refused to wear their new home kit against Belgium in yesterday’s Euro 2020 qualifier in Moscow.

Both countries remained on course for next summer’s finals in Saturday’s evening’s clash, despite the Belgians conjuring up an impressive 4-1 victory away from home thanks to a double from Eden Hazard, a strike from his brother Thorgan and a cool finish from Romelu Lukaku.

But perhaps the Russian players were slightly put-off before kick-off after they decided to play in their old 2018 red home jersey because they aren’t happy with the new design by manufacturers Adidas.

According to the reliable Footy Headlines, the Russia squad refused to pull on their new kit due to the ‘flag-inspired’ sleeve cuffs resembling the Serbian flag much more than Russia’s.

Despite the team’s refusal to wear the strip, it remains on sale in official Adidas stores and online, but it remains to be seen what the players if the shirt will be replaced ahead of Euro 2020.

What do you think of the situation?
