Kazan: World Cup fever is finally taking hold in Russia, where wild enthusiasm in provincial centres such as chilly Kazan is filtering through to Moscow ahead of Thursday’s opening match in the capital. While curious locals have clamoured to see the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar, it has proved a slow build-up to the June 14-July 15 showpiece, which is being held in Russia for the first time.
The tournament opener featuring Russia and Saudi Arabia at the Luzhniki stadium has so far failed to capture the imagination of Muscovites, although they have warmly welcomed foreign fans.
