​From Moscow to Saint Petersburg - World Cup 2018: Day Twenty-One

Over the next month, I'll be covering the World Cup for Tribalfootball. And along the way, I'd like to share with you some of my experiences and keep you up to date with all the action.

Game Day

Thankfully there's only one more day until the quarter-finals. Until then, I thought I'd take this opportunity to show you what a typical game day is like for me.

First thing after eating - write this blog!

Start the trek to the stadium a few hours before kick-off. No trouble getting there with the ever reliable Moscow Metro.

Upon arrival, I immediately head to the Media Centre. Here is where the press collect tickets, eat and finish their match preparation.

Time to head in. Usually an hour before to soak up the atmosphere. And take plenty of photos...

Game time!

A quick breather before racing off downstairs to the press conference. This photo was taken after the Spain vs. Russia match on Sunday.

12:30am. Bleary eyed journalists begin to work, some cursing Yerry Mina for prolonging their night...

According to King Arthur and Lancelot, England will DEFINITELY win the World Cup. Apparently Colombia were the only team who could challenge them...

1:30am. Flags are folded and the train stations are emptied. But Moscow remains wide awake.
