TOMSK, November 17. /TASS/. Scientists at the Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics have started building Russia's first team of robotic football players, the chief of the university's robotics labotarory said on Monday.
Yevgeny Shandarov told TASS that the team would be made up of a goalkeeper and two strikers.

Shandarov said that the robots had to practice coordinated actions during the game and various types of strikes.
