Russia have named a largely domestic-based squad for their home World Cup this summer.
Naturalized German defenders Roman Neustadter and Konstantin Rausch failed to make the cut from a provisional 28-man list while striker Alexander Kokorin is out injured, but Brazil-born right-back Mario Fernandes is included.
Sbornaya play Saudi Arabia in the opening match of the tournament on June 14, before facing Egypt and Uruguay in Group A.
