Croatia gears up to give heroes' welcome to World Cup team

Croatia gears up to give heroes' welcome to World Cup team”

In fact some were questioning why despite her Croatian team losing, Kolinda was visibly the most excited person in the pitch during the medal-giving ceremony.

Gianni Infantino praised the organization of the Russia World Cup and restates that the first Middle East host could expand the tournament.

"I'm sure that our friends from Qatar will be able to host the 2022 Fifa World Cup on the same high level".

Russia, which hosted the World Cup from June 14 to July 15 in 11 cities and 12 stadiums, has been repeatedly accused by Western countries of conducting cyber-attacks including hacking the 2016 U.S. elections.

France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final in Moscow on Sunday to win the tournament for the second time in 20 years.

Qatar will relax laws on the consumption of alcohol, planning areas for visiting fans where alcohol can be consumed to ensure they replicate the party atmosphere of past tournaments at the Nov 21-Dec 18, 2022 event.

"It's been the best World Cup in history", he explained at a press conference in Moscow.

"Russia has become a real football country, a country where football is not only the World Cup, which is organized at an excellent level, but where football has become part of the country's DNA and the country's culture".

Qatar has a population of 2.3 million people and an area slightly smaller than the US state of CT.

The tournament drew fans from throughout the world, and Putin said that "naturally, I can not do otherwise but to thank our guests - foreign tourists, foreign fans".

"Loving your gesture and sporting spirit during World Cup final game", says another.

"We do not want to come forward, because the bonus would be paid only in case of qualification of the Blues in the quarterfinals, but we are very touched by the approach of Kylian".

Putin told an audience of former soccer stars including Brazil's Ronaldo and Marcel Desailly as well as Russian government officials he was sad that the tournament was nearly over but he also noted that it had helped improve the country's image.
