President of UEFA Aleksander Ceferin said that the World Cup far exceeded his expectations while speaking in an interview with Danish goalkeeping legend Peter Schmeichel in Moscow on Friday. “I knew the World Cup will be organized well but I am still positively surprised,” Ceferin told Schmeichel. The high-profile sport official went on to say that he was impressed by “the level of... Еще peacefulness,” clarifying that he did not notice any aggression or meet any extreme fans. “Even police started to smile. They do not smile anywhere in the World,” he noted ironically. Besides the organizational issues of the tournament, Ceferin talked about the reasons behind the dominance of European football teams in the final stages of the current championship, as well as the next World Cup in Qatar and the VAR system. Ceferin made his own predictions about the outcome of an upcoming final game on Sunday, saying that he would not be surprised if Croatia came out on top. “I think they showed so much heart, they showed so much passion, so much fighting spirit that I would not say they cannot win on Sunday,” he explained.
