MOSCOW, April 25. /TASS/. The Russian Football Union’s (RFU) Techical Committee will be evaluating the performance of the national team at the upcoming 2016 UEFA Euro Cup this summer in France, Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko told TASS on Monday.
Asked whether a special expert council would be formed to evaluate how the Russian team played at the European championship, Mutko said "We have the Technical Committee," for this purpose.
"The Committee’s duties had been extended," Mutko, who is also the president of the RFU, said in an interview with TASS. "This is why we have empowered the Technical Committee with the game evaluation."
"Moreover, the Committee has the right of inviting independent experts, including active football coaches," Mutko said. "The Committee will be evaluating the game of the national team."
The 2016 UEFA Euro Cup will be held in France between June 10 and July 10 with matches to be played in 10 different locations, namely in Bordeaux, Lens, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Paris, Saint-Denis, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse.
A total of 24 European national teams qualified for the Euro Cup final tournament in 2016, after the contestants’ format, which was used since 1996, was decided to be extended from 16 to 24 teams.
The contesting teams were divided into six groups and Russia was placed into Group B, sharing it with the teams from England, Wales and Slovakia.
