THE POSTER BOY FOR THE 2018 WORLD CUP IN RUSSIA IS LEV YASHIN.
The poster boy for the world cup 2018 is none other then the greatest goalkeeper ever. His name is Lev Yashin, and he was the goalkeeper for the U.S.S.R., during the great Pele's period. His pet name was THE BLACK SPIDER , as he always wore a black jersey and black shorts as well as black stockings. He as called the Black spider as he was a very good goalkeeper and in his time as a goalkeeper he saved well over 50, fifty penalties. Jokingly people said he had eight hands like a spider to save that many penalties. He sis the only goalkeeper ever to win the footballer of the year. But even though he was such a good goalkeeper, but this was far from the truth , he openly admitted that he was always a nervous person before a match, and had to have a smoke and a drink to calm his bag of nerves He died of stomach cancer. So rightfully he is the right poster boy for the 2018 world cup in Russia.
