The 22nd edition of the quadrennial worldwide men's football championship, Qatar 2022, will mark the first World Cup not to be held in May, June, or July.

On his official Twitter account later, Macron posted a simple message to the team "MERCI".

Putin was watching the game alongside Macron and Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino.

Fifa World Cup 2018 provided football fans a lot of moments to cherish right from the opening night to the final Sunday in Russian Federation. The World Cup is coming to an end in Russian Federation.

"We have all been amazed by the beauty of Russian Federation, the warmth of the people and the order of a society whose story has never been articulated to the world out there".

The FIFA President said 2022 edition of the world cup will leave a positive and vital impact as it has in the 2016 edition. The words, accompanied by a picture of an empty fan zone to mark the end of the tournament, concluded: "Welcome to the real Russia".

"There is some marginal benefit for Putin to having played host to a successful sporting competition that had a largely positive and apolitical tone".

He added "We are, of course, ready to share the experience we acquired in holding the World Cup this year", confirming that Russian Federation will do its best to promote sports and its role in uniting people and countries.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has shown at Russia 2018 it has no moral quibbles with human rights abuses, as long as its bottom line is not affected. Afterward, the president looked emotional as he individually hugged and congratulated each member of Didier Deschamps' World Cup winning side and offered special congratulations to Kylian Mbappe, who garnered the award for best young player at the tournament.

The French president joined the victorious Les Bleus in their Luzhniki Stadium locker room, gave a speech, had fun with star midfielder Paul Pogba while being filmed for Snapchat, and struck a dab pose for defender Benjamin Mendy.
