Athletistic/Football. On September 26 this year, the UEFA Executive Committee decided to allow Russian youth teams to participate in international competitions. However, in early October the decision was reversed. RFU director general Maxim Mitrofanov said UEFA was studying the possibility of admitting Russian footballers under the age of 17.

– There is an order from the UEFA executive committee to study the possibility of returning our youth teams to international competitions. Sort out the whole situation technically – with which countries, in which basket, within what time frame, etc. It is currently carried out by the UEFA Administration. Some journalists began to announce that the UEFA executive committee had canceled something. But you have to ask those who wrote about it,” Mitrofanov said, as quoted by RB Sport.
