The international friendly between Russia and Uzbekistan at the Pakhtakor Football Stadium in Tashkent ended in a 0-0 draw on Sunday.

Valery Karpin, head coach of the Russian team, said there were positives to take away from the match as well as things to build on, during a press conference following the game.

"I am satisfied with the attitude, satisfied with concentration and attention. The work we have done is lacking and it was lacking before, there is no zest in the attack," he commented.

According to reports quoting the the Uzbekistan Football Association, the match was the second involving Russia to be approved by the FIFA and UEFA organisations this year - with points going towards the official rankings - following the country’s suspension amid the conflict in Ukraine.

Russian’s game against Tajikistan on November 17 in Dushanbe also ended in a 0-0 draw.
