Great Britain announces final 45 man roster for European Championship matchup with Russia

Great Britain plays host to Team Russia, Saturday, October 19 at New River Stadium in London as the IFAF 2020 European Championship group/qualification round continues.

Great Britain and Russia play in Division D along with Sweden. The Swedes defeated Russia 34-7 a couple of weeks ago in Moscow.

The British Lions squad finished fifth in the 2018 IFAF European Championship and head coach Michael Callan has assembled an equally impressive roster for this key game with 10 members of the Tamworth Phoenix, 2019 British finalists on the squad. These two teams faced each other in a 2016 European Championship qualifier with Great Britain coming out on top 30-3.

Team Russia played two games in 2018, first losing 27-0 to Spain and then playing Turkey to a 13-13 tie.

The final 45 man roster has been released for the upcoming game against Russia.
