Next stop? World Cup! Iceland to Russia in a Lada

Icelandic football fans Krissi Hilmar Kjartansson and Gretar Jonsson will make the 15,000km (9,300 mile) trip to Russia in a tiny Lada Niva, following the Iceland national team at their first ever World Cup, as revealed in an interview from Reyjavik on Thursday. «I got the car in December and right away we started joking about why don't we drive the car to Russia, cause it's a Russian car, but I... Еще started telling the joke more and more to friends and family. It began to sound good, sound like a good idea, up to the point that we just decided, let's do it, let's drive», explained Krissi. The Lada — which was won via a travel agency competition — is painted in the colours of the Icelandic flag and has already attracted a great deal of attention online from Russians. Iceland will kick off their campaign against Argentina on 16 June in Moscow. They then face Nigeria on 26 June in Volgograd and finally Croatia on 26 June in Rostov-on-Don. The 2018 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to take place in Russia from June 14 to July 15, 2018, with a total of 64 matches set to be played in 12 venues located in 11 cities across Russia.
