His team also lost.
Midfielder of the Russian national team Alexander Golovin first came out in the starting line-up of the French club “Monaco” in the match against “Angela”. In the scheme of placing the players, instead of a photograph of a Russian, they showed an unprocessed computer model without a face.
The error in the broadcast before the match drew the attention of Twitter users, including the Russian national team’s account.

In most soccer championships before the match, a team chart is shown with short animation of the players. They came to replace the usual photos from the profiles of players.
In the manual “Monaco” or on television did not comment on the situation with Golovin. On Twitter, the team published the starting lineup, which used the face of a Russian.

Golovin moved from CSKA Moscow to Monaco in the summer of 2018, but did not play for the French team due to injury. In the match against “Anzhera” he first came out from the first minutes – his team lost with a score of 0: 1. Prior to this Golovin came on as a substitute in the game with “Nim”, which ended in a draw.
