Russia chooses wolf as mascot for 2018 World Cup

Russia has chosen a goggled wolf as mascot for the 2018 World Cup. The wolf, unveiled to the public early Saturday after a month of online voting, prevailed over a cat and a tiger dressed in a space suit after receiving more than half the votes.



The mascot — named “Zabivaka”, which in Russian means “one who scores” — was presented on a popular late-night show on Pervy Kanal state television
