Federation Internationale de Football Association fan carves miniature World Cup trophy on chalk

Luzhniki Stadium

The 82-year old is a special guest of Vladimir Putin despite his current suspension for corruption.

Blatter is slated to watch Wednesday's game between Portugal and Morocco in the Russian capital and might also attend Brazil's match against Costa Rica in Putin's native Saint Petersburg.

Over one million people have attended the 2018 FIFA World Cup fan festival in the 11 Russian host cities over the first four days of the tournament, FIFA said on Sunday.

A CNBC report in April 17 noted that a number of long-term and high-profile sponsors and partners had chosen not to prolong their association with FIFA following the corruption charges levied against football's world governing body in May 2015.

Blatter arrived in central Moscow by auto, where he spoke briefly to reporters and said he just wanted to enjoy the World Cup before he was surrounded by fans who he posed with for selfies.

Russian Federation 3 - 1 Egypt | 19 Jun 2018
FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Streaming, Russia vs Egypt Live Score: For Russia , the biggest hurdle will be complacency. At Egypt's recent training camp in Grozny, Salah reportedly required the help of his team-mates to pull on his top.

Meanwhile, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday he did not know whether any meeting had been planned.

The Russian Football Union honorary president Vyacheslav Koloskov, who played an important role in securing the tournament, was quoted by Russian news agency RIA Novosti as saying he meant to meet with Blatter.

The total number rises to around 100,000 Chinese in Russian Federation when tickets allotted to Chinese companies as FIFA partners, World Cup sponsors and regional supporters are added.

Blatter, who has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, last week told the New York Times he would meet Putin during his trip.

'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 on Tuesday.
