MOSCOW, August 16. /TASS/. Mario Fernandez, a defender from Moscow’s football club CSKA, may make his debut on Russia’s national football squad prior to April-May 2017, Russian Sports Minister and President of the Russian Football Union Vitaly Mutko announced to TASS.
Fernandez, 25, will participate in the national team’s training session scheduled to begin on August 29. The defender was granted Russian citizenship in mid-July. He has been playing for the CSKA since 2012.
"He has received his Russian passport and has a chance to make his debut for the national team in the near future - April-May at the latest. The coach has invited him and wants to get acquainted with the footballer and see him training. We will count on him in the future, won’t we? He is a valuable defender and everybody knows him. He says he would like to play for the national team and the coach’s decision looks logical," Mutko said.
