Suspended former FIFA president Sepp Blatter arrived in Moscow on Tuesday for a FIFA World Cup 2018 visit at the invitation of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The 82-year-old Swiss is banned from official football duty until October 2021 for financial misconduct during his 17-year rule. Blatter is reportedly set to attend two FIFA World Cup matches, including Portugal versus Morocco on Wednesday (20th June) at Moscow’s Luhzniki Stadium. This is Blatter’s first public appearance outside his native Switzerland since July 2015 when the World Cup qualifying draw was conducted in Saint Petersburg. (Video Courtesy: SNTV)
