Come to Russian Federation with friends, family - Putin announces visa-free entrance

World Cup 2018: Luka Modric Wins Golden Ball

"Foreign supporters who now have fan IDs will be able to benefit from multiple entries into the Russian Federation without a visa until the end of the year", Putin said.

Russian Federation allowed soccer fans to travel to Russian Federation without visas to attend the World Cup once they obtained fan IDs that were issued to supporters with match tickets.

France defeated Croatia by 4-2 on Sunday afternoon but L'Equipe felt that many of their players did not perform well in the victory. French president Emmanuel Macron and his Croatian counterpart Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, who shared the stage with the controversial leader, were happy enough to get soaked in rain and celebrate the historic moment.

"Nearly 25 million cyber attacks and other criminal influences on Russia's information infrastructure related to the FIFA World Cup one way or another were foiled during the tournament", he said.

"I am proud of what we achieved - second in the world", Lovren said.

It was the highest-scoring final since England beat West Germany 4-2 after extra-time in 1966 and the highest in normal time since Brazil beat Sweden 5-2 60 years ago.

He added: "We're glad that they liked our hospitality and openness, nature, culture, traditions of our big country".

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote on Instagram: "A marvellous final!"

Although he wasn't in the starting eleven for Russia's first game of the World Cup against Saudi Arabia, Cheryshev was Russia's best player in the tournament with some scintillating performances.

The Russian foreign ministry congratulated France for its victory in an official tweet.

He said that thanks to Russia's tight security there were no "serious incidents" and "people who came to our country really felt they were safe".
