Russia's opponent in Euro 2016 group stage makes no difference - Mutko

The main thing is to move from subgroup - Mutko

The president of the Russian Football Union (RFS), Vitaly Mutko, has said that the most important thing for the Russian football team at the 2016 UEFA European championship is to advance out of the group.

"There is no use in second-guessing, a draw is a draw. We do not care who we get (as opponent), the main thing is to move from subgroup," Mutko said on the Match TV television.

The Euro draw takes place in Paris on Saturday at 8 p.m. Moscow time.
