Read What Putin Told Russian Team After Loss To Croatia

Thousands of cheering and flag-waving Russian fans thanked their disappointed players on Sunday (July 8) after the host nation's fairy-tale World Cup run came to a crushing end with a shootout loss to Croatia. We've succeeded but I believe we can make further steps forward.

"Our prime minister (Dmitry Medvedev) was in our changing room". He referred to Chancellor Angela Merkel, saying: "And I said, 'You know, Angela, I can't guarantee it, but we're protecting you and it means a lot more to you than protecting us 'cause I don't know how much protection we get by protecting you".

Trump has denied that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation and has repeated that Putin has denied involvement in the USA electoral process. Stanislav Cherchesov said in the pre-match conference that Putin had called him before the game against Spain and extended his support. I won't dare forecast too far ahead.

"While the tournament is still going on we see the team who was, theoretically, one of the best - Spain - have packed and gone home already".

"We Russians like extremes so let's not go to these extremes".

"Very soon, after the World Cup is over, we will gather together with all those who deals with physical culture and all those who was engaged in the construction and the operation of these sports facilities and the sports infrastructure as a whole and draw up a plan of using the sports, engineering and transport infrastructure that has been built to develop physical culture in the country".

He also responded to a question on whether the team enjoyed the trust of the country.

"Talking about criticism, if they trusted us or not, we trusted ourselves". Stanislav Cherchesov feels that messages from the Russian President are acting as a mode of extra motivation for the Russian team. To beg someone to trust in you, we didn't want to do that.

"As in any other part of the world, you have to start by sitting down at the negotiating table, lay out your concerns and talk about how to resolve them on a mutually acceptable basis", Lavrov told reporters in Moscow.

"We're entering with our eyes wide open, but peace is always worth the effort", Huntsman said. They are still great guys for us, they are heroes. This, in turn, is fueling concerns in Washington and among U.S. allies in Europe that Trump may proclaim the Helsinki meeting a breakthrough without extracting any real concessions.
