The World Cup is upon us like a Virus

A football flu spreading everywhere

Are you going to Russia for the World Cup?
Well, you can be in Russia in two ways. First, to take a flight and arrive phyiscally on ground in any of the cities in Russia. Second, you can be in Nigeria or any part of the earth for that matter, and yet be in Russia on air.

Well, even if you are physically in a city like Moscow, you still need to be on air or online to cover all that is happening in Russia. The cities where the world cup matches will be hosted are far apart and will be very expensive to travel all around during the period. The fact is, you can be in Russia while physically here in Nigeria.
