FIFA Confederations Cup Was A Good Sign For 2018 World Cup In Russia

by

The 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup seems to have gone off without a hitch, and that’s very good news for Russia.

The hosts of the 2018 FIFA World Cup seem to have answered many troubling questions at the Confederations Cup, which only has the tournament’s final match remaining, had no reported incidents of hooliganism, racism and homophobia in the last month. This seems to bode well for next summer’s World Cup.

NESN.com’s Marc DiBenedetto and Marcus O’Mard discussed what steps the Russian government has taken to ensure a successful tournament on this week’s episode of the “NESN Soccer Show.”
