Chinese soccer fans make presence felt at World Cup

  • Chinese soccer fans make presence felt at World Cup

"While we have heard reports of some restaurants and bars in Russian Federation experiencing supply and delivery disruptions, we are fully operational and delivering in full capacity to our partners so the millions of football fans in Russian Federation can continue to enjoy Bud and our other brands responsibly during the World Cup", a company spokesperson told FOX Business.

At the moment, too busy schedule does not allow Vladimir Putin to visit the matches of the 2018 world Cup.

Blatter will meet Putin on Wednesday, spokesman Thomas Renggli said, and watch Portugal take on Morocco at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium.

The 82-year-old former FIFA president is banned from official football duty until October 2021 for financial misconduct during this 17-year rule. Both men deny any wrongdoing.

Asked if he would use the influence he built up during his 17-year reign as Federation Internationale de Football Association boss to support a British bid, he said: "OK, I will use my influence, if England will accept my influence".

It was a chance to give his image a makeover, just like Blatter enabled Putin to do with Russian Federation by awarding him the World Cup.

"I think it is a respectful activity and I was happy to meet him (Putin) in the Kremlin", he said.




"[I was told that] it could be with Wales and Scotland together but I said, 'Why not Ireland, all together?' With 48 teams, you need more than one country to host it".

"I was suspended, I'm still a suspended president. I'm still president, but suspended", he said. "It was not an easy time for me, it's still not the easiest time".

This restriction applies to all games of the world Cup, and not only performances of the Russian team.

"Just four days into the World Cup and we've already reached 1,000,000 spectators at the FIFA Fan Fest". The fans eagerly wait to see if wonder boy Neymar who was brilliant at the 2104 World Cup can carry his form into this edition of the football extravaganza.

"Football should not be dominated by politics".

Last week, former Scottish Football Association boss Stewart Regan said an English-led home nations bid is "definitely on the radar".
