According to Mr. Gboyega Okegbenro, seasoned sports journalist and CEO of Peachtree Communications Ltd., producers of the show, "With Hisense To Russia" is a lifestyle, breezy, fans-engagement and rewarding show, created to entertain thousands of Nigerian soccer fans ahead of the world soccer fiesta.

"The communal snubs come after Theresa May's announcement last week that Prince William and all her government ministers will refuse to play any part in the competition", writes the Sun.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who replaced Vitaly Mutko as the head of the Russia 2018 Organising Committee earlier this month, hit back at that decision last week.

Mr Roberts said: "When people behave as they did at the weekend, they not only put themselves at a greater risk but also genuine supporters, because it becomes harder for us to try and infl uence policing styles".

Speaking after Australia joined more than 20 other countries in agreeing to send Kremlin representatives back to Moscow, foreign minister Julie Bishop suggested the Socceroos could be banned from competing in the sporting spectacle - as the UK's allies continue to isolate Russian Federation in response to the poisoning of a former spy in England.
