Cheryshev receives Russia call

Real Madrid forward Denis Cheryshev is one of several newcomers to receive call-ups to Fabio Capello's Russia squad as the former England boss looks to the future.

Cheryshev, 21, has been named as part of an expanded 35-man squad for the friendly with the United States on November 14.

"I'm very happy to have made the provisional squad! I'll just keep on working," he wrote on Twitter.

Cheryshev is yet to make an appearance for Jose Mourinho's senior side but is a regular for Real Madrid B. He is following in the footsteps of his father, Dmitry, by receiving international recognition with Russia.

Arsenal's Andrei Arshavin and Reading's Pavel Pogrebnyak missed the cut again but former Chelsea player Yuri Zhirkov was recalled to the squad, which is expected to be reduced down to 23 next week, after a three month absence.

Arshavin, 31, has fought his way back into contention at Arsenal in recent weeks, after being sent on loan to Zenit Saint Petersburg, and has appeared in their last four games but it now appears he has fallen out of favour on the international stage.

Russia have made a good start to their World Cup qualifying campaign, notching three wins out of three, including a 1-0 defeat of Portugal.
