The summer break proved nothing harmful for Russia, who jumped onto the field for their first battle at the European Season in this Euro Beach Soccer League stage in Berlin. After finishing in the third position last year, and with the Superfinal being held this year on their soil (Moscow, August 4th-7th), Likhachev’s team are set to fight for even higher ranks. And they found no better way to make it clear than with an authoritarian victory over Romania they began building in the first period. Captain Leonov swept his team ahead and achieved a victory Russia would never lose.
The most amusing version of the Russian offensive machinery showed up during the third period, in which they put into siege the Romanian nets. With an unstoppable attacking push, the menace hardly left the surroundings of the Carpathian box, and Shishin put this flow into productive terms with a great shot making it 2-0 for his side. The current European 3rd place holders did not took their pace down and kept aiming to widen their advantage, but the posts would not let them do so. The match was heading for the horn to signal the end of the second period when Krashenninikov hit the ball with his hand inside his penalty box, what took the ball to the 9-meter spot. The Romanian start, Maci, did not miss the chance to lift his team closer in the score, and made it 2-1.
But Russia was not for making their opponents reach the last period so close on the score, and Eremeev would head a ball in almost from the floor to restore the two-goal gap under the horn. Although Maci proved he would not give up at the beginning of the last stage, that last minutes had again a clear Russian colour. With the hits by Eremeev and Shishin completing their doubles, Russia finished any Carpathian chances, and let their side begin the season in the way any big teams needs to: with the three points at their hands. And, what is even better, offering an image that leaves little room for speculation: they are in their best shape already.
