Former FIFA President Sepp Blatter during an interview with Reuters in Zurich, Switzerland, April 10, 2018.
Argentine government security official Guillermo Madero, who is in Russian Federation, told The Associated Press that the fan "won't be able to enter stadiums at the tournament and he won't be able to watch World Cup matches".

"It was not an easy time for me, it's still not the easiest time". A National Security Council spokesperson tweeted that Bolton will first meet with U.S. allies in London and Rome to talk about national security issues, then head to Russian Federation "to discuss a potential meeting" between the two world leaders. It is a good start to the tournament, it's a good start for football, and it's a good start to promote this game to the millions of people who are directly or indirectly touched by the game.
"Fifa has done a great job to organise this World Cup here".
