Russia football team play in the UEFA confederation and have become one of the strongest sides in Eastern Europe in the past decade as the current roster boasts world class players including Aleksandr Kerzhakov, Igor Akinfeev, Alan Dzagoev and Vladimir Bystrov. Russia wear an all red home shirt with a blue and white diagonal band across the chest representing the country's national flag and their away shirt is the same but in a white colour and are manufactured by adidas.
The Russians play their home games in white shirts, shorts and socks. Since the breakup of the USSR, Russian football has struggled to reach the level that the USSR team had during the Communist era, the shirt has featured however in two World Cups 1994 and 2002 and two European Championships 1996 and 2004, but they've failed to get out of the first round each time.
The Russian national team played their first match against Finland in Stockholm, Sweden on the 30th June 1912 losing 2-1. Russia play their home games in the Dinamo Stadion.
Russia have had several home strips before with a white shirt their first ever in 1992 then in 2006 they changed to red and that has remained since.
