Russia national football B team

The Russia national football B team, also known as the Russia-2 national football team (Russian: Сборная команда Россия-2),[1] is a secondary team for Russia in association football. The team is controlled by the Russian Football Union. It was founded in 2011.[citation needed] In late 2012, after Sergei Fursenko was replaced by Nikolai Tolstykh as the president of the Russian Football Union, the team was dismantled, at least for the immediate future.[2]

On 28 February 2022, due to the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine and in accordance with a recommendation by the International Olympic Committee (IOC), FIFA and UEFA suspended the participation of Russia, including in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The Russian Football Union unsuccessfully appealed the FIFA and UEFA bans to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which upheld the bans.[3]
