The athlete believes that it is important to separate football and politics in the modern world.
Previously members of the British Royal family refused to come to Russia for the 2018 world Cup matches. The situation decided to comment on a former defender of Tottenham, Arsenal and England’s Sol Campbell. In his opinion, this point should be to put football at the forefront and with a calm attitude to what is happening outside of sport. He recalled that the English team will take part in the 2018 world Cup, will visit Russia and the football delegation of the country. The Campbell is a little doubt in the final decision of the Royal family not to go to the world Cup. “Anything can happen” – said Sol.
Earlier, former England defender visited Volgograd, where he talked with reporters. He remembered how she played against Russian teams before he remembered Russia and so on.
