World cup; Depardieu; vodka

Of course we are all sitting down to watch the football World Cup from Russia. Famous Frenchman Gerard Depardieu is now a resident of that country (sometimes) and may well be present at France's opening match tomorrow (Saturday) against Australia. This is a midday fixture and French supporters will be asking GG to share one of his passions - alcohol. Their latest terrace chant is "Gerard Depardieu, sors nous ta vodka, on va gagner chez toi". Surprisingly what has attracted criticism is the reference to alcohol. The originators of the chant say it's just for a laugh. So listen out for the great man's hommage, sung no doubt in moderation.
