After a photo shoot, Portuguese sportsmen were approached by a Russian woman wearing a national outfit and to the sounds of a widely known Russian song invited them to try Russian karavai. The team’s key player, Ronaldo, was among the first to taste the bread, having seasoned it with a bit of salt.
At the 2018 World Cup, which is soon to kick off in Russia, the Portuguese will play in Group B, set to compete with Spain (June 15), Morocco (June 20) and Iran (June 25).
