Abbosbek is one of the leaders of the football generation, which is called “golden” by some people in Uzbekistan. In U-17 World Cup in Mexico they reached the quarter-final and in U-20 World Cup which is being played now they also showed some great football. Admittedly, he’s only a valuable substitute, but noone disguise the fact, that Makhstaliev and some of his friends from the U-20 National Team like Igor Sergeev, Djamshid Iskandarov or Vladimir Kozak are a big hope for the better future for the club and whole Uzbekistan’s football.
