最佳战绩:苏联时期(1966)最好成绩,世界杯第四名;俄国三次入围,没有走出小组赛

How did they qualify?Automatically, as the host. Russia’s form over the last two years, though, has been patchy: the occasional creditable result, like a draw against Spain, but sapping setbacks, too, including a heavy defeat against Ivory Coastand a disappointing display in the Confederations Cup.

如何晋级?作为东道主,俄罗斯自动出线,过去两年,俄罗斯状态不稳定:偶尔取得佳绩,例如战平西班牙,但也屡遭败绩,包括惨败给科特迪瓦,在联合会杯中表现也令人失望。

What can we expect?There is a genuine fear in Russia that, whether or not the World Cup as a whole is a success, on the field it might become only the second host nation — joining South Africa in 2010 — to be eliminated in the group stage.

前景如何?不论俄罗斯世界杯成功与否,俄国人真心害怕俄罗斯步2010年南非之后,成为第二个在小组赛被淘汰的主办国。

Who’s the star?Only Alan Dzagoev, a mercurial playmaker with CSKA Moscow, gives Russia any creativity, but much will depend on the form of goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.
