Russia 2 to play in Chechnya

The Russian national football team’s second squad will hold their next game in the Chechen capital Grozny.

­Yury Krasnozhan’s charges are scheduled to play a friendly against Lithuania on November 12.

Grozny’s newly built Akhmad Aream, which is the home stadium of Premier League side Terek, will be the venue for the encounter.    

The 30,000-seat facility was opened in the Chechen capital this past May.

The Russian second squad was created in July and has already spread the national team’s geographic reach, playing in such the cities as Nizhny Novgorod and Bryansk.

Russia’s main squad, meanwhile, will play Greece away on November 11 in preparation for Euro 2012.
