The head coach of the Russian national team, Valery Karpin, appreciated the performance of singer Aphrodite with the song “Valera” after winning a friendly match with the Cuban team.
The meeting took place on Monday in Volgograd and ended with a score of 8:0 in favor of the Russian team. After the final whistle, singer Aphrodite performed the song “Valera” in the arena.
— What is your favorite song in Aphrodite’s work?
— I don’t know any other songs by Aphrodite. If you sing, maybe I’ll find out.
— Do you think it was wrong to include the song?
“I think it’s unnecessary to single out someone.” There are Valera, Petit, Vasya, who else is there? It is not entirely correct to focus attention on one person, no matter who he is. We need to focus on the entire team,” the Match TV website quotes Karpin.
