What We Know About CSKA Moscow
What do we know about CSKA Moscow? Or to give them their full name - Professional Football Club Central Sports Club of Army
Lets start with the basics.
1. They are from Russia
2. They are managed by Brazilian legend - Zico
3. They wear Red and Blue or all White away kits
4. Their nickname is 'Army Men'
5. They were founded in 1911
What about their players who are the threats?
Well........ I was playing Football Manager 2009 the other day and Man City bought Yuri Zhirkov for £20million, so I am guessing he is a good player. Plus defender Sergei Ignashevich has good ratings on Pro Evolution, so I reckon he is good.
I have also heard of Vágner Love, Daniel Carvalho and Keeper Igor Akinfeev, so I reckon they must be good too.
In 2005 they won the UEFA Cup after beating Sporting Lisbon.
So in conclusion, what we have learnt is they have some good players, the are from Russia and that they won the competition only 4 years ago.
I hope you now know a little bit more about our opponents.
