Luis Rubiales was not present at the FIFA Congress in Moscow, the RFEF president instead in Krasnodar to deliver the news that Julen Lopetegui had been sacked as coach just two days before their opening game with Portugal.

"What can really be the legacy, whether we host matches or are just involved with this in some other grand scheme, that can make sure that Baltimore and the state of Maryland have maximized the potential of being a part of the World Cup?". "But when I was five years old, a country called Canada welcomed us in", he told delegates at the FIFA Congress in Moscow.

Here's what the World Cup stadiums look like from space. We are ready made.

"We're on the map all the time, but we've got to keep putting this city and country on the map and to do it in the sporting world - in the soccer, football world - is a huge opportunity to expose this city and this country to literally billions of people, to attract thousands of tourists to come here".
