Federation Internationale de Football Association 'takes note' of Sepp Blatter's attendance

Banned by FIFA, Sepp Blatter was back at the World Cup on Tuesday expecting to see two games and hopefully Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Banned former Federation Internationale de Football Association president Sepp Blatter will fly to Moscow on Tuesday, his spokesman told Reuters.

But they are unrivaled fans of the lovely game, for sure, considering that they snapped up some 40,000 tickets to the World Cup matches, not counting those who happened to buy 3,500 fake ones from a swindler of a Russian firm.

TASS news agency quoted Alexei Sorokin, head of the Russia-2018 organising committee, as saying he had seen Infantino and Blatter at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium watching Portugal's 1-0 win over Morocco.

The 82-year-old Blatter is serving a six-year ban from official football duties for financial misconduct during this 17-year rule.

No charges have yet been brought and Blatter has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.

England lost out to Russian Federation for the right to host the 2018 tournament.

For his next release, the Duchess chose a light Sussex slinky MIDI dress with a black small belt at the waist from the Givenchy. Last week, the duchess did so again when she attended the Trooping the Colour parade in an off-the shoulder dress.

Blatter said it was "respectful" to be invited to the Kremlin despite being suspended from football.

"I just saw him and said I have to take a picture with him", Mexico fan Maximiliano Vazquez said after taking a photograph with Blatter.

National senior women's football team assistant coach Andrew Price has labelled host country Russian Federation as the most impressive team six days into the FIFA World Cup. "I'm still president, but suspended", he said.

The World Cup kicked off here on Thursday and will continue through July 15, with a total of 64 matches to be played by 32 national football teams at 12 stadiums in the host cities.

"[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 am suspended as a president of Fifa but here I am a fan so therefore I can go everywhere in world to watch football".
