Eventually, the two finalists will play in the Final at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow, in the 21st final of the FIFA World Cup.

As with all World Cup Venue Countries, there will be a great deal of travelling to and fro between the Cities in which the matches will be played, Russia is a vast country and their Cities are far apart. This is a major inhibiting factor for the travelling fans who must finance trans-Russia travel and with the potential threat to their safety in mind, many England fans may have decided to stay at home and cheer at the television from their armchairs.
We wish the England Team every success. All our hopes are riding on Gareth’s guys coming back with the FIFA World Cup Trophy.
