Russia coach laments harsh end to World Cup dream

Trump to talk one-on-one with Putin to decide if Russia wants good relations with US – envoy

Trump to talk one-on-one with Putin to decide if Russia wants good relations with US – envoy

Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino told President Vladimir Putin on Friday the world was "in love" with World Cup hosts Russia and praised him for overcoming negative stereotypes about the country.

Thousands of cheering and flag-waving Russian fans thanked their disappointed players on Sunday after the host nation's fairytale World Cup run came to a crushing end with a shootout loss to Croatia.

Entering the World Cup as the lowest ranked team in the tournament by Federation Internationale de Football Association, it all started in such marvellous fashion for Russia as Denis Cheryshev and Aleksandr Golovin shone in that opening game against Saudi Arabia just over three weeks ago.

"Our prime minister [Dmitry Medvedev] was in our changing room".

"He has been calling me, he called me before and after the (last) game with Spain", Cherchesov said.

He added that Trump hopes the meeting "can help reduce tensions and lead to constructive engagement that improves peace and security around the world because you can't solve problems if you're not talking about them", but said: "the ball really is in Russia's court". "What we achieved, that was so cool", Andrey, a lawyer, said next to a street corner screen that had shown the match.

"He missed training the day before yesterday but yesterday and today he trained and we will see if I am able to let him play from the first minute".

"He told me to have our eyes open and make the right steps".

And during the kicks from the penalty spot, Danijel Subasic saved Fedor Smolov's strike while Ivan Rakitic held his nerves to convert the winning kick as the hosts bowed 4-3 on penalties at the Fisht Olympic Stadium, Sochi.

Putin sees himself as the victor, and wards of Stanislav Cherchesov before the start of the world Cup was a laughing stock at the world level. "We don't want anybody tampering with elections", Trump said.

"We felt your support from the first second". Then in the final 16 stage, the top teams like Argentina, Portugal and Spain were knocked out of the World Cup.

"Of course we wanted to go further", he admitted.

Just last week, he trumpeted a Putin talking point, tweeting: "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!"

"You may be surprised but I try to get as much information as possible in football".

"As in any other part of the world, you have to start by sitting down at the negotiating table, lay out your concerns and talk about how to resolve them on a mutually acceptable basis", Lavrov told reporters in Moscow.
