BELGRADE, February 14 /TASS/. The Russian national team has lost its third European Minifootball Championship final - this time in a match against Spain that ended in the Serbian capital Belgrade 7-3 in Spain’s favor.
Russia lost two previous finals at the European Minifootball Championships - to Spaniards (1:3) in 2012 and to Italians (1:3) in 2014.
It was the Russian team’s fifth final match against Spain at the European Championships. Russia won its only European Minifootball final in 1999.
