• How to get into the Russian football
In August of this year in Russia there were three unusual football box: two in Moscow and one in St. Petersburg. With the help of special equipment on the boxes was carried out permanent record matches - there are selected in the K11 team.
After dozens of games and viewing video from an incredible number of 8,000 participants selected 22 of the best. The boys are trained in a special camp in Novogorske, and now, when the end of training only a week, a photographer BigPikchi Maria Plotnikova spent a day with the team. Show how these guys live "from our yard" in the K11 camp, which is already on 1 October can receive proposals from professional football clubs. And there, and close to the team.
Last week for the team was rich in events - Monday in the camp came the best Russian player Andrei Arshavin, the XXI century. In the past - the captain of the Russian team, the master of sports, he talked with the children and gave a master class on the field. No officialdom - making it easy and pleasant communication. Andrew told funny stories, the young players were laughing and asked awkward questions:
- How to avoid the star of the disease?
- I do something with it was born, I feel better, - said Andrei, but immediately made a reservation, it was a joke: he believes that no star of the disease had never been, even in the "Russian Internet" just talking about it.
Arshavin - a final character in the series of those who have already met the team. Prior to that, the guys managed to shake hands with Alexei Smertin, trained with Roman Shirokov and look into the eyes Leonid Slutsky.
By the way, about training. Throughout training camp K11 downhill is not allowed. "The future of Russian football" coached legendary Valery Forgetful. Even before the start of training, he knew what he had to work front: in the past month to play 22 who do not know each other's players understand their best qualities, to bring everyone to a decent level of play. The task seems impossible, but the coach recognized that the guys did not know themselves in order to facilitate his work.
All the guys have set a specific goal - to make sure to get noticed. I see the glowing eyes and the fact that they are working at full capacity. Our task - to explain to them that in professional football should not only play, but also to be a person that life is always the player under the gun.
From an interview with Valery Nepomnyastchy Mikhail Polenov
In addition to sports training, the boys are daily classes on theory. Masha Plotnikova classes could not get Valery Kuzmich coach can not stand when outsiders come to class.
selection criteria, camp format - all contributes to the fact that the K11 team should get a star. Team, only those who really want to play, who understand that for this to work and for failure can not be justified. Of course, all have one thing more - a boundless love for football.
In the camp of the goalkeeper Gregory K11 Kashakashvili team lives together with his younger brother, 17-year-old striker Lasha. Gregory first tried to play football when he was seven. On a cold day, he found next to the gate forgotten someone goalie gloves. I put them on and began to run on the edge, warming up with hitters. The coach saw him, and put it on the net. So Grisha became a goalkeeper. A few years later football drew his brother. Now they have themselves trained children in the Football Association Alexandra Panova.
The preparation of the guys was just a month, a day, two sessions - morning and evening. At 16:00 K11 at full strength sent to the field, and we cease to disturb them. October 1st match with the boys Nike Academy team, which is trained on the basis of the England football team - to relax once. And long interview to give - too.
