From time to time, and due to numerous reasons, big countries happen to break up into smaller states. The consequences of these processes are multiple, and they even reach the football realm. This happened to Czechoslovakia, which broke up into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1992, but played as the Representation of Czechs and Slovaks team for half a year. The 1xBet betting company provides opportunities to wager on both Czech and Slovak teams, which currently compete independently in numerous tournaments.
The same happened to the Soviet Union. The country collapsed by the end of 1991. However, at that moment, the Soviet squad had qualified to the Euro 1992. The Soviets were allowed to be in the Euro as the CIS national team. When trying to find a betting company with wagering options on football matches, make sure to visit the 1xBet website.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, those in charge of Soviet football immediately asked FIFA to continue as the CIS national squad. CIS stands for Commonwealth of Independent States, which was a loose political alliance between many of the former Soviet countries. Therefore, it was thought that it was the best way to continue representing the former USSR at international level. The live odds on 1xbet.pk/live are really great and also apply to all the wagers made on the national teams of former Soviet states.
FIFA allowed the CIS to participate in the Euro 1992. The team went to the tournament with players from:
Some notable names of the squad included Viktor Onopko, Oleksiy Mykhaylychenko, and second-choice goalkeeper Stanislav Cherchesov, who would serve as a head coach of the Russia national team from 2016-2021. Whenever the Euros are being held, the live odds on the 1xBet website are definitely the best on the market and are available for all bettors.
The CIS team played only three matches, which were on the group stage of the 1992 UEFA Euro. Byshovets was the head coach during that whole period. The bookmaker 1xBet app for smartphone offers all the wagering options for each game of the Euros. The only goal of the CIS football team was scored by Igor Dobrovolski on the 12th of June 1992 in a match against Germany, which ended 1-1. The Germans, in turn, responded with a Thomas Hassler goal.
The last match ever of the CIS team took place on the 18th of June 1992. They were defeated 3-0 by Scotland. The goals came from Paul McStay, Brian McClair and Gary McAllister.
