They finished third in France by beating the Netherlands in the third place play-off and since then they have always come up short, but always played an attractive style of football.

Forward Fedor Smolov received a rousing reception despite making a mess of Russia's penalty kicks.

The national team has been gaining followers and drawing increasing political attention from government leaders with every win.
