World Cup Aftermath: Russian Team Coach Decorated with the Order of Alexander Nevsky by Vladimir Putin (VIDEO)

Russian team coach Stanislav Tchertchessov, who scored a remarkable run at the 2018 World Cup, where he led the Sbornaya to the quarter-finals, received a prestigious distinction from Vladimir Putin.

On July 28, Russian President Vladimir Putin decorated Sbornaya coach  Stanislav Chechnov of the prestigious Order of Alexander Nevsky, in recognition of his work as head of the national team. Stanislav Tchertchessov led Russia to the quarter-finals of the World Cup, which is the country’s best result since the fall of the Soviet Union.

This distinction – which takes its name from Saint Alexander Nevsky, a 13th century Russian national hero – rewards people for the services they have rendered to the nation.

Goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev, whose masterful parade against Spain in the round of 16 allowed his team to sign a resounding feat, also received a personal distinction, the Order of Honor. A distinction that also benefited veteran Sergueï Ignachevitch, 38, who came out of international retirement for the competition and played every game.

Stanislav Tchertchessov’s performance did not go unnoticed at the international level: he was named by FIFA for the title of best coach of the year alongside, among others, Didier Deschamps, world champion with France, or again Zinedine Zidane, winner of the Champions League with Real Madrid for the third year in a row.
