"From Rushaa with Luz!"
The World Cup kicks off in Moscow @ '4 bells' this afternoon in the MAGnificent Luzhniki Stadium, which will aalso host the final!
'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' have of course been there before (az yi'd expect!) when we played Anzi Makhachkala in the Europa Leegue (roond of 16) in a near desorted stadium az Anzi play in a war zone 1,000 miles away to the east of Moscow! (hence why the game woz played there!)
In total 73 Toon fans managed to get visas plus 30 Russians who aalso supported us!
The crowd woz 5,000 or so in this 78,000 seater stadium!
Below iz a match report from that game (ground 298 on the list!)
