On the Fan Fest Venue, the Mexicans Mastered the intellectual game of Russians!Friday, 29 June 2018, 11:23
At 19:00, an amazing match started, "Colombia - Senegal", which ended with a score of 1: 0 in favor of the Latin American team. At that very time in a parallel match, Japan was losing with an identical result of 0: 1. Thus, the teams of Japan and Senegal had the same number of points as well as equal goals scored and conceded difference. In this case, according to FIFA rules, the "Fair Play" decides by the number of yellow and red cards, which eventually had Senegal to exit. So, the Senegalese in the additional time of the match received two yellow cards and did not go to the 1/8 of the world championship just because of that! Colombia rejoices, Japan rejoices, Senegal grieves, Poland goes home.
After such a tense development of events, relaxing was needed. It was an intellectual game with questions on football topics. And even though most of the questions were in Russian, the game turned out to be international! Russian players from Mexico, Colombia, Sweden joined the Russian-language ghosts and, having overcome the language barrier, achieved high results in the competition. The teams representing Mexico, Peru, Russia and Belarus took the second place! All the winners were awarded memorable prizes from the city-organizer and made a memorable group photo. In the remaining time before the match, "England-Belgium" the audience supported the tradition of changing-day, the essence of which is to exchange the attributes of their team with a representative of any other country.
The teams of England and Belgium were already qualified for the playoffs and approached the match with the same scores of points scored, as well as goals scored and conceded. The trainers gave the opportunity to rest the main players and brought to the field, in fact, the second line-up. As a result, the victory was celebrated by the "Red Devils" with a score 1: 0 - Belgium was not afraid of the more complex grid of games, to which she came from the first place.
On June 29th, the Fan Fest will have a day off with the rest of the world before the playoffs. June 30th on the venue, along with 1/8 finals, will start Rock weekend, which will be a lot of Ural rock. On Saturday there will be the electronic duo Electro Gorilla & G Polar, Audrey, Patric Cash, EK-PLAYAZ and the Ensemble of the Ural grief.
