"We have already been in Kazan for five days and, above all, focused on training, preparing for the Confederations Cup, but some people had an opportunity to see the capital of Tatarstan a little, someone jogged in the city. We understand that Russian culture is very rich, especially the culture of Tatarstan impresses us, as I understand, some monuments are included in the world heritage, but now we are focused primarily on training," the coach said.

On Sunday at the Kazan Arena, the Mexico national team will hold the first match in the tournament - against the team of Portugal (beginning - 6 p.m. Moscow time). Also teams of Russia and New Zealand will play in Group A.
