Advocaat to make debut as Russia coach against Bulgaria

Durban: Dick Advocaat will make his debut as Russia coach on Aug. 11 when his team take on Bulgaria in a friendly, the Russian FA said on Saturday.

The two countries, who both failed to qualify for the World Cup finals, have agreed on a match in Moscow before they begin the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.

Dutchman Advocaat was appointed Russia`s new national team coach last month, replacing compatriot Guus Hiddink.
