Putin says Russia's World Cup has been a success and "I am sure that our friend from Qatar will succeed at holding the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2022 World Cup at the same highest level".
The leader of Russian Federation is not sheltered from the heavy rain, the head of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-kitarović, during the ceremony the victor of the world Cup, for which he received a portion of criticism from "Internet forces".
"We know that the guests from overseas, the fans, would like to come back to us, bring their family and friends, and we are sure to consider a visa regime providing maximum comfort for those fans that have fallen in love with Russia", Putin said. The hosts of RNZ's Football World Cup Podcast are with us again in our Wellington studio.
"Today is a ceremonious occasion as Russian Federation passes the FIFA World Cup torch to the state of Qatar".
A country of such values, deserves a World Cup in Everything.
Qatar 2022 will take place during the winter period of Nov 21 to Dec 18.
One could have actually thought that Kolinda was a wife of the 39-year-old Macron.
In all seven games they played in Russian Federation, they had an average of 48-per-cent possession, doing the hard work off the ball. This is already happening. Which was the best goal? Eleven host cities, namely Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara, were selected to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup. Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic thanked Putin for what she said was the successful organisation of the competition.
When Croatia went on to beat England in the semi-finals, that number was surpassed, and, as you can see from the photo above, the World Cup Final brought record mentions of this tiny country which dared to dream. I invite all of our friends to come as guests.
