We won World Cup on emotions, says Russian bid chief Sorokin

Russia’s 2018 World Cup bid chief Aleksey Sorokin revealed that the most important condition to win had been hard work for a year and a half, providing numerous presentations, both personal and for different football confederations.

­“Our goal for the final presentation was to really tell how we felt about the idea of a bid, rather than discuss the specifics of our bid.”
