Azerbaijani Neftchi football team handed in an application for participation in the Commonwealth Cup to be held in Moscow in January.

Agasalim Mirjavadov, the main coach, said that the team did not plan to participate in the competitions due to the status of collective. “Neftchi won the Azerbaijan championship in last season. Therefore, it is natural that just we will go to the competitions. Besides, the team got to the final and raised their status at the last time,” the coach stressed.

It should be mentioned that Neftchi lost to Muscovite Lokomotiv with score 1:2 at the last Commonwealth Cup.
