Fifa World Cup: Russia and an Ode to The Ramón Allones Hermitage Cigar
The World Cup is officially over the half way mark and the group stages are just three days away from finishing. With Russia holding the event for 2018 and through to the Round of 16, we thought we’d take a look at their progress in the cup so far, predicting their success, as well as talk about the Ramón Allones Hermitage Cigar for sale on our website now, which is the exclusive Regional Edition cigars for sale for the Russian market.
Russia Football Team Profile:
Manager: Stanislav Cherchesov
Star Player: Igor Akinfeev
Russia’s goalkeeper and captain has 109 caps under his belt and and has led his team CSKA Moscow to six title wins over the course of his career.
World Cup History: Russia has not made it past the group stages since 1991, when the Soviet Union collapsed and subsequently has participated in 3 Fifa World Cups. The furthest the country has come to winning the World Cup was back in 1966, when they played as the Soviet Union, coming in at a close 4th.
World Cup Wonder: In 1994, striker Oleg Salenko broke the world record by scoring five goals in the World Cup match against Cameroon. Still to this day, the record remains unbroken.
Notes: Russia has exceeded many expectations, scoring eight goals in the group stages and entering the next round of matches. Nevertheless, they are set to play Spain on Sunday 1st July at 3pm and is predicted to be knocked out of 2018’s World Cup with bookies foretelling a 3:1 win to Spain.
