Leftwinger,Ekaterina Marennikova about return of former head-coach Evgeny Trefilov:

“There are many reasons for the weak results of the Russian national team. One of them is the generation change which takes a lot of time. We have plenty of new players in the team and we cannot change the squad immediately because we need time to make a good team,”

“With the return of Trefilov we will change only the approach in our work. The success of the national team will depend not only on him but on the team itself, and I think that this team is able to show good results.”

Goalkeepers: Maria Sidorova (Zvezda Zvenigorod), Galina Gabisova (Rostov on Don), Maria Basarab (Lada Togliatti), Elena Fomina (Dinamo Volgograd)

Wingers: Elena Avdekova (Dinamo Volgograd),  Anna Vyakhireva (Zvezda Zvenigorod), Polina Gorshkova (Lada Togliatti), Oksana Kiseleva (Kuban Krasnodar), Olga Chernoivanenko (Lada Togliatti), Marina Yartseva (Rostov on Don)
