Press-attache of the “Gums” Alexander Shevchenko expressed surprise that the 27-year-old forward Chernihiv team Alexander Filippov was not included in the extended list of the national team of Ukraine, which announced recently Andriy Shevchenko.
“For the entire season, never not come to see — not even a phone call. Well you can just call the same Ryabokon, ask about Filippov, perhaps, about his personal qualities, even about something. But no. Even in the expanded list cannot be included,” wrote Shevchenko in Facebook.
Last season Filippov has played for Desna 32 matches in all competitions, where he scored 18 goals and gave 3 assists.
