Not sure if I'm missing something here but why would it matter if he even gets in the Russian squad? I get it's a home world cup but who was the South Korean star at the 2002 world cup? Other than Huddink (who wouldn't matter obviously as the coach) I can't remember one and they got the semi finals. The Russian have an easy group but it's a terrible team. Surely they won't hold the ball enough to get any significant PB and MB will be non existent as no players will rise to top 200. Also the chances of a Russian leaving the Russian leagues are very slim as they pay huge wages for average players so not sure why anyone would buy any Russians?
