20,000 fans from Argentina expected

Moscow, June 9 : Over 20,000 football fans from Argentina are expected in Russia this summer to see matches of the FIFA World Cup, Argentinian Ambassador to Russia Ricardo Ernesto Lagorio has said.

“We expect up to 20,000 football fans from Argentina to come to Russia for this World Cup, perhaps more than that,” Ambassador Lagorio told journalists on Friday, reports Tass news agency.

“We also expect that Russia will organize an outstanding tournament, since we witnessed how successfully it organized the Confederations Cup last year, and now we are sure that there will be no problems at all.” IANS
