Somehow, out of all the years before i am highly confident of Russia doing good in the World Cup.

Most of the times they are the team to get eliminated but this year i think they will do better than before? who thinks they will do good? :)

What is your opinion? :greed: :greed:

I think Turkey, Sweden and Russia are about the same level but Russia are inconsistent so it's depends what day Russia gonna have.

On a good day Russia can be in the last 8.
