The Belarus national football team started preparation for the final matches of 2016.
The Belarusian team will have a guest sparring with Greece, and on Sunday, they will compete with the Bulgarian team. This match will be an official one and will be held in the framework of qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Head coach of the team Alexander Khatskevich invited debutant from BATE Yuri Kendysh.
Alexander Khatskevich, head coach of the Belarus national football team:
I will tell you right now that Kendysh will be playing instead of Stas Dragun. Stas hasn’t played since September. Yuri plays in almost every match, and the position is the same, so why not. It is important to think about a future perspective. That’s why we have friendly matches. However, the main match is on Sunday.
At the moment, Belarus is on the fifth place in its group. The Belarusian team scored 2 points during three matches.
