A Russian volunteer working at the World Cup stunned the Swedish national players during their practice session in Krasnodar Region by singing the country’s national anthem at the stadium.
While the Scandinavians were warming up for their training session, the volunteer took the microphone to surprise the players with his a capella anthem performance.
