Martin Ainstein undergoes an unforgettable experience in Moscow as he visits the Russian Cosmonaut Training Center during his tour of World Cup host cities.

Michel Platini can still be FIFA president - Sepp Blatter

Ian Darke leads the ESPN panel in predicting the 2018 World Cup winner with names of Germany, Brazil, France and England among the list.

Disgraced former FIFA president Sepp Blatter told L'Equipe that Michel Platini can bounce back from his ban from football to take charge of the governing body.

Platini's suspension and president Gianni Infantino's term both end next year, and Blatter, 82, believes the former France boss can still achieve his ambition of taking FIFA's top job.

"He can always come back. He's 20 years younger than me," Blatter said. "When you've been president of the most important confederation, you can also lead...
