Alexander Kokorin and Fedor Smolov will spearhead Russia’s attack in the November friendlies against Argentina and Spain, as coach Stanislav Cherchesov unveiled his 27-man squad on Monday. The 2018 World Cup hosts will take on Argentina at Moscow’s renovated Luzhniki Stadium on November 11, before facing Spain in Saint Petersburg three days later. “We will play two matches against the world’s top teams within three days,” Cherchesov said. “We desperately needed to experience this kind of test against teams that are amongst the best in world football.”
