He was able to play for Russia, but did not wait for an invitation.

The Armenian national team faces Latvia in the Euro 2024 qualifying phase. At the beginning of the second half, Alexander Petrakov’s team wins 1:0. Armenia’s debut goal was scored by Lokomotiv defender Nair Tiknizyan.

In the 35th minute of the game, Armenia striker Grant-Leon Ranos ran past Latvian goalkeeper Nils Purins. But he couldn’t beat the goalie. The attack of the Armenian team continued with the second rhythm: Artak Dashyan shot into the penalty area, and Tiknizyan only had to substitute his foot. Nair scored his debut goal for Armenia in only his fourth game for the national team. Previously, he took the field in matches with Turkey (1: 2) and Wales (4: 2) in the qualification for Euro 2024, as well as in a friendly with Cyprus (2: 2). Based on Tiknizyan’s emotions after the first goal, it becomes clear what it means for him to play for the Armenian national team.

However, Tiknizyan may not have made his debut for the Armenian national team. The fact is that before, Nair played for the Russian national teams of different ages. He has five caps for Russia Under-19, four caps for Russia Under-20 and seven caps for Russia Under-21. The defender, as part of the Russian team, took part in the European Under 21 Championship, which took place in 2021. He fully played all three group stage matches. But Nair did not wait for the invitation of Valery Karpin to the main team. In 2023, it became known that Tiknizyan received an Armenian passport and decided to play for this team.

“Why was I ignored in the Russian team? The head coach probably isn’t counting on me, but this is absolutely normal. I never blamed any of the coaches for not playing. Everyone has their own vision of it. A coach may consider that a soccer player is simply not suitable for his role model. I don’t know the specific reason, but it’s very possible that it is. Like I said, I have no resentment or anger. I can only argue this way: if he has not been called up to the Russian team, it means that he has not reached the level of the national team. But I am not saying that the level of Armenia is several times lower. It’s just that the Armenian team believes in me, that’s why I got the call.”

Let’s be happy for Tiknizyan, who, together with Armenia, is fighting to get into Euro 2024!
