Infantino: Not time to think about future of Confed Cup

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:58

The FIFA president will attend the official opening ceremony, which is scheduled to begin at 16:00 local time (1 p.m. GMT) at the recently built St. Petersburg Arena and will stay to watch the tournament's first match, which will be played between hosts Russian Federation and New Zealand at 6 p.m. local time.

This year's tournament will be held between June 17 and July 2 at four stadiums in Russian Federation.

Shprygin, who had been deported from France a year ago during the European Championship, said he had been notified by Confederations Cup organisers that his fan-ID, needed to attend matches, had been cancelled. "The main thing is that we took the lead".

"The Confederations Cup is the champions' tournament".

This project has changed the landscape of the Russian football and football in the entire world.

Federation Internationale de Football Association general secretary Fatma Samoura said last Friday that the estimated attendance for the tournament would be 65 per cent, and that Russia's match against Portugal had been sold out for weeks. We played the match we have been planning for.

It's an global eight-team tournament, played every four years.

"It is the experience and knowledge that will be of enormous value for 2018".

The hosts now take on Portugal on Thursday (AEST) after Fernando Santos's men have played Mexico in their Group A opener. Besides Russia and New Zealand, Portugal, Mexico, Cameroon, Chile, Australia and Germany have also sent their national teams to participate in the cup.


And Samoura said that 480,000 tickets had already been sold - 60 percent of the overall total.

The 16 matches are being shared by the capital Moscow, St Petersburg, Sochi and Kazan.

"Since I joined the national team I've felt very welcomed", Silva said. Just months earlier they were bundled out of Euro 2016 in the group stage without winning a match.

Russian authorities insist there is nearly no chance of a repeat as police have cracked down on suspected troublemakers with a barrage of searches, detentions and criminal probes.

Some 191 fans have been put on a blacklist banning them from games and legislation has been introduced to toughen up punishments and deport foreign hooligans.

Russia's opening goal had an ugly finish after two pretty pieces of individual skill once the All-Whites defense needlessly lost the ball.

Russian Federation go into the tournament opener as favourites but the question is: can the hosts, who have some young players both in defence and in attack, show their best under psychological pressure?

Russian authorities insist that the Confederations Cup's ticketing system, which requires ticket holders to apply for a personalised fan ID, ensures that all fans are screened and troublemakers are kept away.
