08 December 2016
Samara 2018 World Cup Host City Ambassador and Zenit defender Aleksandr Anyukov talked to FIFA about his childhood, path to football glory and 2018 World Cup.

"Every time I visit, there are more and more changes. There's a lot of construction, but in 18 months, I'm sure everything will be beautiful. Samara is rising up as a city. It's fantastic that we won the right to host matches at the World Cup; it's a huge boost. I'd like to see as many guests as possible at Russia 2018. They can come to watch the football and see our country as well. I'm convinced we'll manage the tournament's organisation and everything will be fantastic."
