MOSCOW, May 3. /TASS/. A memorandum on cooperation signed earlier in the day between the Russian Football Union and the German Football Association stipulates among other issues a friendly match between the two national teams, RFU President Vitaly Mutko said on Wednesday.
The document was signed in the Russian capital at the building of the Russia-2018 Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and was signed by RFU President Mutko and DFB President Reinhard Grindel.
"Friendly matches should be discussed separately," Mutko said. "They (the German team) have a very tight schedule. There are no exact dates yet."
"The memorandum, however, stipulates not only a friendly match between the Russian and German teams, but a possible friendly game between the two national youth teams," he added.
The RFU and DFB initially inked a memorandum on cooperation in 2012 and today’s document, according to Mutko, stipulates a broader cooperation between the Russian and German governing football bodies.
A similar memorandum on cooperation was signed by the RFU with the Italian Football Federation in October of 2016.
