    The last game for the Russian national team in the qualification of Euro 2020 ended with a solid victory over the San Marino squad on Tuesday with a 5-0 score in Group I.

    Russia's Daler Kuzyaev scored in the 3rd minute of play. Kuzyev and his teammate Nikolai Komlichenko, who put a dagger-like shot into the San Marino goal in the 78th minute of the match, recorded their first score for the Russian national team.

    Other goals were scored by Sergey Petrov, Aleksey Miranchuk, Aleksey Ionov.

    Russia and San Marino were competing in Group I of the UEFA Euro 2020 qualification round, along with Belgium, Kazakhstan, Cyprus, and Scotland.

    The final stage of the football tournament will be held from 12 June to 12 July next year across 12 cities: Amsterdam, Baku, Bilbao, Bucharest, Budapest, Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, London, Munich, Rome and St. Petersburg. The latter's stadium on Krestovsky Island will host three matches of the group stage and one quarterfinal.
