Akinfeev confesses his love for Russia

CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev called Russia the best country in the world and also noted that he has nothing to do abroad. These words of the former Russian national team player provoked an ironic reaction from football fans.

"I spent my entire career at CSKA because it's been my love since childhood. Everything I love is connected to my homeland, Russia, and even on vacation I spend 80% of my time at home. I love the snow. Many people dreamed of going abroad, but I never dreamed of it. I wouldn't trade our birches for anything, and mushrooms are our everything," Akinfeev said in an interview with the propaganda news agency TASS.

Readers of the Sports.ru portal took a swipe at the 2008 European Championship bronze medalist. They noted that no one is waiting for Akinfeev to go to Europe and reminded him that the footballer campaigned for constitutional amendments and the nullification of dictator Vladimir Putin's term.

"I got birch sap through my phone screen", "Of course he won't, he was calling for voting for the amendments for nothing", "Patriotism has long been a dirty word in Russia. Because it is the main symbol and lever of the current government", "Russia is the only country in the world with mushrooms, birches and snow", "And pensioners, do you know how much they get? And there are no mushrooms in Europe?", "This is probably a cut from an interview with Bezrukov, who played Akinfeev in a new TV series on Channel 1", "I didn't know that snow, birches and mushrooms are some kind of natural anomaly that occurs only in Russia," the comments read.
