Russia’s Football Union (RFU) will look at possible transfer to the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) at the next meeting of its executive board, RFU President Alexander Dyukov said on Sunday.
"We will consider this matter at an executive board meeting. I am not sure any decision will be passed but the situation requires discussion. UEFA considers us a member of the European family. We are implementing all the programs, they are participating in project financing. It would be unsavory of us to plunge into talks over their head. I said it is important for us to hold official matches. We had two years of coronavirus, and now we are suspended," he said.
Following the ban, Russia’s national team has had three friendlies, with Kyrgyzstan (2-1), Tajikistan (0-0), and Uzbekistan (0-0). The games were counted in FIFA rating.
