"We've set such high standards that it will be tough to reach them at the future World Cups," Matviyenko said during a meeting with FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura.

Matviyenko added that Russia's performance at the home tournament would "go down in history" of football.

"Our national team has achieved a true feat, it played brilliantly at the World Cup," the speaker said.

Russia lost to Croatia on penalties in the quarter-finals on Sunday morning. Reaching the last eight is Russia's best result at the World Cup since the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1991.
