legendary Icelandic footballer Eidur Gudjohnsen told TASS on Sunday that “The Russian national team has been going through a difficult period in maybe couple of years. It is a great opportunity to lift up their profile in front of their home fans,”
“There is no bigger opportunity than holding a World Cup in your country, so it should be a lot of positive around the team,” he added.
Gudjohnsen was among the honorary guests who attended the 2018 FIFA World Cup’s Football Park Opening event in Teatralnaya Square in Rostov-on-Don in south Russia on Saturday.
“I was very warm welcomed in Russia, everybody around is very helpful. I’ve got nothing but positive things to say. I haven’t seen much but so far it is very good”
