Why not?» President of the French Football Federation (FFF) Noel Le Graet said he is hoping for a France-Russia final, during an exclusive interview with RT France in Moscow on Saturday. Le Graet started the interview by complimenting the World Cup organisers for doing a 'wonderful' job. «The stadiums are thought out well, people are friendly, the cities are incredibly clean. I am amazed of the way the people communicate with us,» he said. When asked about his dream final, he said France vs Russia, 'why not?' «For us, the task was to leave the group, we did it. Now we are waiting for something different, everything will be different with Argentina,» he added. France's football chief also panned Jose Mourinho's predictions made for RT, saying a Portugal-Argentina final was now 'impossible', after the Latin Americans finished second in their group, leaving them on the same side of the draw as Portugal. The conversation then moved to politics and Le Graet welcomed improving relations between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron. France defeated Argentina on Saturday and are set to advance to the quarter finals against either Uruguay or Portugal.
