India will be hosting the FIFA under 17 World Cup which is starting from 6th October 2017. In addition to which Adidas has launched its new football exclusively for the world cup. It’s called Krasava, which is a word commonly used by Russian sports fans to describe a beautiful performance and is the ultimate praise for a team when they play with creativity and flair. Maybe the 23 official languages of India were missing a few words to describe football so elegantly. The structure of the ball incorporates the same panel shape as the Beau Jeu and Fracas, the Adidas balls that were used in the group and knockout stages of UEFA Euro 2016. You can pick a similar retail variant of this one up for ₹1,799 and ₹2,499 from any Adidas retail store. But don’t forget to add that heavy Russian accent while purchasing one.
