Ex-FIFA president Sepp Blatter to attend Portugal's clash with Morocco

Disgraced former Federation Internationale de Football Association chief Sepp Blatter will defy a ban to attend two World Cup matches and also meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, his spokesman said on Monday. They have had it in 1966 so it is a long time ago.

"This is what I introduced in 2011", Blatter said. "This is also in the statutes of Federation Internationale de Football Association and the regulations and you should not announce who votes for whom".

Blatter voted for Russian Federation to host the World Cup when it won a four-candidate contest in December 2010.

The result of each ballot and related votes by members of the FIFA Congress for the 2026 hosts were made public.

His presence in Moscow can be an awkward distraction for Federation Internationale de Football Association and its new president, Gianni Infantino, who comes from a neighboring town in the same Swiss canon (state) as his predecessor.

The World Cup is also influencing consumer behaviour in China, with fans stocking up on snacks and beverages to enjoy while viewing matches, some of which take place deep into the night due to time zone differences.
