Probably being tested as much here as he will be in the SPL tbf 

I got way too excited by the retail deal and gave him a bit more praise then merited, like you say, Russia have been in Portugal's half about 2 times :lol:

Why are Russia always so ordinary for such a populous footballing nation?

If I were to hypothesise I might conclude:

  • Lack of grassroots football since the demise of the USSR
  • More money in the country but lack of investment in football
  • too many overpaid foreign players
  • IIRC lots of the great USSR players were from the Ukraine 
  • their equivalent of Reagan running their football association.

The sheer size of the country and its bad weather probably don't help either.

Shit game really. They got a clean sheet but TBH I thought Alves looked a bit lost at times. Anyway, it's how he plays for us that counts. 

I only seen the second half so can't comment on the first but what from what I did see he looked a very good solid defender. With the second half Russian onslaught he looked very rarely troubled and won countless headers. There were a few times he cleared the ball out for a throw in instead of trying to find a team mate but I really don't mind this as his job is about defending first and foremost. Bocanegra and Weir done the very same thing and were fantastic players for us.
