Penza fans believe Russia’s goal in Marseille scored thanks to native air they brought
Penza, 12 June 2016. PenzaNews. The Russian air brought in cans by Penza fans to Marseille helped the national team to score its tie-winning goal in the match versus England during the extra minutes by Vasily Berezutsky, believes Evgeny Titkov, organizer of the Penza-Marseille car rally.
“We carried the air of Russia along the way of 7,000 km. It took me great effort to open the can right at the 90th minute, just when the match was almost over. You can guess what happened – our guys made it,” he told the Russian TV Channel One reporter.
On Wednesday, June 15, the Russian national team will play versus Slovakia in Lille, while England will play against Wales in Lens.
As PenzaNews reported earlier, a group of four young men left Penza on June 6 to visit the Euro-2016 matches in a car rally. Among other things, they carried several cans with Russian air, which they planned to present the organizers of the championship and the Russian footballers.
