Unlike the previous few major tournaments, this is the weakest squad at least on paper and although they should have enough about them to get out of the group stages it is hard to see Russia going past first knockout stage. Cherchesov has made several high profile changes, especially at the back bringing in Viktor Vasin (CSKA),  Fedor Kudryashov (Rubin Kazan), Georgi Dzhikiya (Spartak Moscow) in what will be three-man defense.

In midfield, Igor Denisov is unlikely to be part of the squad after falling out with national team coach while Alan Dzagoev is the standout start in this Russian side with a couple of quality goal scorers in Fyodor Smolov and Aleksandr Kokorin spearheading the attack.
