Russia has invented a "blow to the coalition that doesn't want to see us" in football
The famous former Zenit and London Arsenal footballer Andrey Arshavin called the friendly match between the Russian and Brazilian national teams "a blow to the coalition that does not want to see us". He expressed confidence that the South American country fully supports the aggressor in the war, although its President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva declined an invitation from dictator Vladimir Putin to attend the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg.
Arshavin said this on the air of the propaganda TV channel Match TV. Commenting on the disruption of the Russian national team's training camp in June due to the rivals' demarche, he noted that the situation was not unexpected for him, and the decision to cancel the training camp was logical.
"If you haven't found a sparring partner, there's no point in just going to gather. I assumed that this would be the case with the Cameroon national team. They are afraid of sanctions or some kind of discontent from the confederation. Since we have such good relations with the Brazilians between the countries, if a Brazil-Russia match is organised, it will be a good blow to the coalition that does not want to see us. Because no one will want to cancel Brazil, and they won't be able to, because it's a cash game, and there's no way to exclude it. If the Brazilians show that they are with us to the end, and this match goes ahead, it would be great," Arshavin said.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, former CSKA Moscow defender Andrey Solomatin said that Ukrainian children "need to be remade". In addition, he admired dictator Vladimir Putin because he "did not bend to these f*gg*ts, to the West".
