Just read an interview with Garry O'Connor in the Daily Mail and now I have the fear. Scottish international O'Connor played for Lokomotiv Moscow for a couple of years and said that he played on the plastic pitch of the Luzhniki Stadium 15 or 16 times. He believes that the chances of injury are enormous, and that several Russian league players refuse to play there. He recalls one occasion when the groundsmen laid so much water on the pitch before kick off that his feet were submerged!
