In March 2023, the Russian team played two friendly matches – against the Iranian team (1:1) in Tehran and with the Iraqi team (2:0) in St. Petersburg. Before the games, Karpin, when asked about a possible resignation in case of failure, said that he did not retain his place in the Russian team. Later, Sports Minister of the Russian Federation Oleg Matytsin called on the specialist to decide whether he is “with the national team or alone”.

– I don’t think Karpin lost his motivation to work in the national team. Valery Georgievich may have said sharply. He often says things that journalists and fans take emotionally. In any case, Karpin is a professional and will work to progress both in Rostov and in the national team.

When there are no official matches, it’s difficult to work with the team and put things in place. It’s one thing to play friendlies, and it’s another to qualify for the World Cup. Valery Georgievich attracts young people, the last training camp showed that we have exceptional players who are able to show the game. I think the second half of the game against Iraq showed everything, although they are not one of the strongest teams in the world. But what we won is already good,” Kolyvanov told Metaratings.ru.
