Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin is not upset that the national team of Russian Federation on football was eliminated from the world Cup in 2018.
He added that Russian Federation would continue to be a "football country" after the tournament, as the game has become an integral part of the country.
With World Cup costs for travel and tickets - $105 for the cheapest seats at group games for visitors - always rising, the different audience for games helps explain changing patterns of behaviour.
"Everyone discovered a lovely country, a welcoming country, that is keen to show the world that everything that has been said before might not be true", he said.
"I also want to thank the people of Russian Federation and president Putin, it has become a footballing country".
It is worth mentioning that 2022 FIFA World Cup hosts Qatar are now embroiled in a diplomatic row with neighbouring Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) countries including Saudi Arabia, who have severed economic and political ties with it for the country's alleged support of terrorism-related activities.
However, more than 100 members of the Qatar organising committee are embedded in the activities at the tournament in Russian Federation to learn about every aspect of hosting such an event.

Coach Zlatko Dalic had again been talking up the unity and teamwork within Croatia ahead of Sunday's final against France in Moscow.
Corruption allegations still swirl around the awarding in 2010, the deaths of workers have highlighted human rights problems and, because of the hot summers, the tournament is to be played between November 21 and December 18 instead of the usual June/July slot - forcing a change of the global football calendar.
"We will decide whether it's 48 or 32 teams in the next few months". That's because they would have clashed, one way or another, with the uniforms of the five opponents Croatia has played since.
Ah, that's what we're going to talk about. And to prove it, Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino took the dais sporting a volunteer sweatshirt instead of a formal jacket at the Luzhniki on Friday. He's only doing this for free kit, apparently.
"If we feel that it's not in favour of us or of football, we won't go for it", Al Khater said at the opening of a Qatari hospitality house in Moscow's Gorky Park.
"It is hard to think of the World Cup without VAR‚ it has been certainly a more just competition and this is what we wanted to achieve".
But it soon became clear that, for the World Cup at least, that couldn't have been further from the truth. and the England fans began to book their flights. Now, 32 teams have been a part of World Cup traditionally, but Gianni hinted about increasing the number to 48 countries!
