World Cup diary: Buying an England shirt and getting lost on Russia’s Metro

first_img This should probably be the actual England shirt 6 Goughie was not happy 6 6 Darren Gough: One of the more acceptable Englishmen down under It looks like a person, as our button muppet, Olly said to me. Clear lines, bright colours; wonderful. It’s a thing of beauty. And I was a little bit sneaky as you may have heard on Drive.I turned right instead of left and it meant that instead of travelling only two stops on the tube, we travelled four stops on three different lines.Goughie, as you can see, was fuming. Emma the producer thought it was funny, Star Wars Dave (the one with his head down just behind Goughie) was probably watching Return of the Jedi on his phone. 6 I bought an England training top at the Zenit shop, which I’m pretty certain the majority of England fans would love to be the actual England shirt. Still no trouble, apart from an argument between a Morocco fan and a member of hotel staff this lunchtime. And St Petersburg is still beautiful.center_img It was a metrosexual experience for me – brilliant.We encountered the Russia Day parade through St Petersburg, went to the Zenit St Petersburg club shop and interviewed an Aussie who was a mad cricket fan and delighted to meet and be interviewed by Darren Gough. It’s a true story that the Aussies don’t like the English, but Darren is absolutely an exception. They love him down under. And while I was in the club shop, I also bought a t-shirt featuring a fans’ favourite, Aleksandr Kokorin. A knee injury has ruled him out of Russia’s World Cup squad, which is a massive blow to Russia who are already terrible.Having spoken to several Russians here, not one of them is confident, and they’re all relying on the possibility of some favourable refereeing decisions. But this T-shirt – can anyone explain what it’s all about please…? If there was an award for Metro maps (thankfully we know of none) this would win it The talkSPORT team are in Russia to bring you unrivalled coverage of the 2018 World Cup.Adrian Durham, presenter of talkSPORT’s brilliant Drivetime show, will be revealing all from behind the scenes throughout the tournament in his World Cup diary.Here’s his third entry…Okay let’s start with the sunglasses on the St Petersburg road sign – anyone get it? It is there to warn drivers to watch out for blind people. Pretty obvious when you think about it.I didn’t mention the Metro in the last part of the diary, so it’s time to be a #MetroBore again. How good is this map? What is going on here? 6 6 Is Russian vodka all that?
