Dutch singer Eva Simmons, a Dutch electro-pop singer who performs in English, visited the Saransk City Press Center.
While answering media questions during a news conference, Eva said that she has been to Russia many times and adores her Russian fans. She added that during the 2018 FIFA World Cup she gave concerts in Moscow and Sochi after the Russian team's matches.
"Russia made it to the quarterfinals, and it would have been cool if it had won the World Cup," Simons noted, adding she was ready to bet on Russia to win the Cup.
According to the singer, she has prepared a surprise for her Russian fans at tonight's show that will be held at the FIFA Fan Fest: she has learned a Russian song, but she would not reveal which one, inviting everyone to her concert instead.
The singer also noted the excellent work of the security service at Saransk airport and the quality of the FIFA Fan Fest stage.
