"We learnt a lot: how to organize the transportation, people moving from area to area, stadium organization — it was a very good organization. We are learning also how the municipality runs gardening, waste management, and all the other issues, so technically we are very happy to see Moscow as a city and Russia successful in organization. This is very important for the World Cup," Rumaihi said.

Russia hosted its first World Cup on June 14-July 15. Matches took place in the cities of Kaliningrad, Kazan, Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Saransk, Sochi, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, and Yekaterinburg. The tournament ended with the victory of the French national team.

Qatar was chosen by FIFA to host the next World Cup in 2022.
