What is it – to root for the team, which is long gone

“My life changed dramatically on May 6, 2006, on the day of Saint George, which is highly revered in Ossetia. On this day, Stavropol Dynamo and Alania (1: 3) played in the second league.

He scored his first goal at the age of 16 very beautifully in the Krasnodar Cup game, and in the derby with Lokomotiv at the age of 17 years and 8 days, he became the youngest scorer in the history of Russian championships.

Often intertwined with big politics and always tied up with big money and influence. What are silent, discussing the topic of “Dynamo” and “Mariupol” – in the material RBC-Ukraine.
Post-revolutionary decline
After 2014, the second Maidan, the start of the war and the annexation of a part of the Ukrainian territory, the once growing, albeit with oligarchic money, Ukrainian football entered a steep dive.
