NOVOGORSK, June 3 (Sputnik) - Russia's preparations for the World Cup at their base camp near Moscow are different from their recent training camp in Austria, Russia midfielder Aleksandr Samedov said on Sunday.
The Russian national team are continuing their preparations for the tournament in Novogorsk, just outside Moscow.
"We are not worried, we are just working. We know what we are preparing for... The preparations in Austria differ from what we are doing now. We analyzed the game against Austria [1-0 defeat of Russia]. We made many mistakes, and we watched them back. We need to improve," Samedov told journalists.
The World Cup hosts will play Turkey at the 30,000-seater VEB Arena in Moscow in their final warm-up match ahead of the World Cup on Tuesday.
"Meanwhile, we are preparing for [the match against] Turkey. I think we have a general understanding of our tactics for the upcoming game. On Sunday, we will analyze Turkey," Samedov added.
The 33-year-old made his debut for Russia in 2011, earning a total of 47 caps. He was involved in Russia's last appearance at the World Cup in Brazil four years ago.
Russia will host its first World Cup from June 14 to July 15. The fixtures will be played at 12 stadiums across 11 cities.
