Russia set to face Serbia in first Euro friendly since UEFA ban

The Russia men’s national team will play Serbia on Thursday (March 21).

It will be Russia’s first game against European opposition since November 2021.

The Russian Football Union (RFU) was banned from FIFA and UEFA competitions in February 2022 following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

As well as being blocked from international tournaments, like the World Cup and Euro 2024, all Russian clubs continue to be excluded from the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League.
