Football fans have filled Moscow’s streets, celebrating the kickoff of the key football event. Sputnik has gathered the emotions, thoughts and reactions of the people who have arrived in Russia to watch the biggest football event in the world.

Thousands of fans from dozens of countries have already witnessed the kickoff of the World Cup in the opening match of the tournament between Russia and Saudi Arabia in Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. 

Many of them started celebrating the launch of the Mundial long before the opening match was launched. Despite the numerous grim warnings and foreboding sounded by their governments, they are mostly in good spirits, even if not 100% confident in the victory of their favorites.

Moscow's streets saw the first major influx of football enthusiasts yesterday, when fans from Mexico, Chile, Argentina, the UK and from many other countries came out to express support for their teams.

Some of them took photos with Moscow residents.
