The Confederations Cup is a great dry run for World Cup hosts, and Russia has also pushed the boat out for
the Football for Friendship programme for young players. FIFA is delighted.
“Definitely the Cup of Confederations is used by all actors as a rehearsal and as I have seen in terms of welcoming,
in terms in terms of security level in terms also of fan engagement I can only imagine how beautiful the World Cup next year will be,”
said FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura .
There remain a few small details to nail down, but Russia is World Cup ready says its Football Union vice-president.
