Is a full Russian visa required which has to be applied for in person at one of the Embassy offices in London, Manchester or Edinburgh?

 

If so. I suggest using the Edinburgh office as it will be less busy.

Argentina for me.

I am hoping this is the World Cup where Lionel Messi confirms his status as the greatest player of all time. Germany will be the best chance of a European nation winning it, with possibly France, Spain or even Belgium there or thereabouts. England I think will do a bit better than expected although I don't think they are strong enough to win it. Heavily dependent on Harry Kane for goals they have to hope he is on fire during this tournament. I like Southgate. He seems to know how to organise a team and he goes into this WC with understandably less expections than previous England managers. This is due to having significantly less talent available to him than previous England managers.

The England team manager is severely hampered by the fact that the Premiership is so saturated with foreign mercenaries. This gives whoever the manager is a much more difficult job as there is a very limited pool of international class English players to choose from. There should be more. England is a big football nation in world terms, but a top league full of foreign players and foreign managers does not a top class international team make.

Sane dropped by Germany -

It shows how strong Germany our to drop such a good player.

Messi will score twice in a 4-2 overtime win for Argentina against Spain in the quarter final. The all deciding fourth goal with a lovely dink over De Gea after nutmegging Sergio Ramos.

I'm sure the Russian players will be well looked after by Putin once they get knocked out.

It seems the ballon d’or is also there for Messi if he out performs Ronaldo at the tournament as well.

He has been outperforming him for the last two years but still didn't win it. Because Ronaldo and his PR-team successfully managed to make everyone believe that all that matters is the "goals scored" column on the stats sheet.
