Paris NN footballer Edgar Sevikyan said that he chose the Armenian national team with his heart
Paris Nizhny Novgorod midfielder Edgar Sevikyan explained the choice between the Russian and Armenian national teams. His words are quoted by Sport Express.
Sevikyan said that he received an offer to play in the Russian national team when he began applying for an Armenian passport. “I didn’t expect this at all. I didn’t call or talk to anyone, I just told the club that they were preparing documents for me to play for Armenia,” the footballer shared.
According to the player, he made a choice with his heart. “It wasn’t like I met with someone and decided. First of all, I asked myself if I wanted this. I felt what I wanted and agreed. No one could influence me,” Sevikyan emphasized.
On August 31, Sevikyan, summoned to the September training camp of the Russian national team, announced his refusal to accept the invitation due to his decision to play for Armenia. He played three matches as part of the team as part of the qualification for the 2024 European Championship.
