Russia 1994 World Cup kits

In the 1994 FIFA World Cup, Russia was drawn into group B with Cameroon, Sweden, and Brazil. This was considered a strong group with Russia having limited
chances of qualifying for the second round. In their first two games Russia lost 2–0 to Brazil and 3–1 to Sweden. Teetering on elimination, Russia defeated Cameroon 6–1 with Oleg Salenko scored a record five in Russia's match against Cameroon and finished as joint top scorer but his efforts were not enough to secure his team a place in the next round. Russia was eliminated from the tournament with three points from one win and two losses. Sadyrin was later sacked following what was a poor performance.

Russia with the REEBOK kits on these tournament. Russia home in blue shirts was worn once during the debut match against Brazil, 20 June 1994 at the Stanford Stadium, Stanford. Russia away shirt in white was worn twice on the match against Sweden and Cameroon.
