Iran's national football team Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz and his footballers arrive at Moscow's Vnukovo airport on June 5, 2018, to take part in the 2018 FIFA World Cup football tournament in Russian Federation.

In an exclusive interview with Shen Haixiong, head of China Media Group, Putin named the main candidates to clinch the coveted World Cup trophy as well as Russia's chances at their home football tournament. The possession was nearly even, however Austria dominated the Russians offensively, outshooting Russia 14-4 with the Russian team not registering a single shot on target.

Since the start of 2016, Russian Federation has won only one game of 13 against teams which qualified for the World Cup, and has conceded in each of its last 10 games. Thus, former Amkar Perm and Kazakhstan defender Aleksey Popov told Sputnik on Wednesday that given Russia's recent friendly results, the country should "hope for a miracle" at the FIFA World Cup. This year, the total World Cup prize money is going to be $791 million, of which $400 million will be distributed to the teams based on their performances/finishing position.

"We will try our best to broadcast World Cup for Vietnamese people, but not at all costs".

Toure played 319 matches over eight seasons with the Sky Blues and won the Premier League three times and the FA Cup once. Toure was previously linked with New York City FC, which are part of the City Football Group owned by Manchester City .

"I'm bitterly disappointed", Russian coach Valery Nepomnyashchy, who guided Cameroon into the 1990 World Cup last-eight round and now coaches Baltika Kaliningrad in the Russian second tier, said afterwards.

Tuesday's draw meant he is Russia's first manager ever to fail to win in seven consecutive games.

Germany holds the current title, winning the final game in 2014.

"Fifa's ultimate objective in the fight against the secondary ticket market is to prioritise the safety and security of fans and enforce a fair 2018 Fifa World Cup ticketing pricing scheme", it said in a statement. Yesterday the team had to show their maximum... and show that they are ready for the World Cup.
