I always do enjoy reading people comment on Russia who have never set foot in the country. The stereotypes and delusion is hilarious. It is usually the media feeding this dribble and idiots just take it in as the truth.

Respect to your head coach though Finland is a real dark horse this year for me and will spoil the tournament for someone.
