You’re pushing the envelope a tad here pal, and like the usual keyboard warriors, you find it very easy to be condescending sitting in your darkened room.
Never heard of planes eh, I’ve flown from London to Sydney and Brisbane, Buenos Aires, Bangkok, Tahiti and Singapore, plus visiting Canada, and maybe 20 of the Lower 48, NYC, L.A., Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Memphis.
I still find it hard to get my head around how hundreds of Senegalese can afford to take time off and buy plane tickets and hotels and follow their team to Russia.

Not surprised, especially with how the media pushes an anti-Russia motive. Latin Americans are turning up in great numbers because they don't buy into the stupid racist propaganda against us. And I'm sure they are having a great time in our country

100k Costa Ricans live in the US, which may not sound like many but the country has 4 millions it's still significant.



160k Panamans in the US alone out of a population of 4 millions.



These diaspora aren't as huge as Mexico's (which is certainly the largest diaspora in the world and by far) but they're by no means small either considering their general population's size.

there are no 1 million colombians in the US, there are over 400k, unless you think Americans with colombian ancestry are colombian.

colombian is a person born in colombia, not in the US.

plus, what kind of provincial ignorant simple minded person thinks one needs to live in the US in order to afford a holiday in russia.

i live in colombia and i recently visited Europe for three weeks. noo need to live in MCDONALDSLAND.

Goes to show you how much American media influences people around the world.

The moment your country doesnt align with American global interests, be prepared to be BASHED and given a horrible reputation by American and European media. *Europe is Americas poodle*
Iím not influenced one iota by the American media, nor the British media, Iím old enough and intelligent enough to work out when something or someone is trying to influence my thinking.
Iíve been to St. Petersburg, both in Russia and Florida, and when I was a truck driver, I went to Poland, Ukraine, Czechoslovakia before it split, and Hungary enough times to recognise that the population all seemed okay to me, no one gave me a hard time, and I never felt unsafe anywhere.
Quite honestly, reading your input, youíre wasted on here, you should be writing fairy stories.

Irene.

The disgusting display by Russian thugs in Marseille against ordinary England fans, is well documented as was the Russian response when Igor Lebedev says Russian fans involved in violence in Marseille should be praised for ‘defending the honour of their country’. Whilst the Head of Russia's Ultras Alexander Shprygin has been pictured with Putin and knows him personally.

Head of official Russian supporters Alexander Shprygin to be deported - The Guardian

Euro 2016: Russian insider reveals hooligans are 'more than Ultras -The Independent

Russian MP offers solution to hooligan violence: make it a spectator sport - The Guardian

Moscow football official to violent fans: well done lads, keep it up - The Guardian

As for Putin's Russia, the levels of corruption, organised crime and state sanctioned murders are also well documented, as is the Putin regimes link to the ultras and other such groups.

The fact that Putin has banished the hooligans and has put a major security operation in place, does not negate from past events or the fact that Putin himself and his regime are little more than organised crime.

As for the BBC it recently screened a very good documentary about Putin's Russia, with highly respected broadcaster David Dimbleby offering a unique inisght and analysis of modern Russia under Putin.

Putin's Russia with David Dimbleby, review - Dimbleby plays a blinder - The Telegraph

In terms of reporting most of it relates to the England team rather than Russia, however few England fans have even bothered to go and who can blame them, although the support will increase if England make it through their group and on to the next round.

You don't support Mexico, with Trump wall, separations of immigrant children?

It's pronounced as Me-hee-ko. Southern Cal will have big celebrations tonight.

Why wouldn't a person born of of Colombian parents be Colombian too? Because it goes against your trying to prove that Colombia is wealthy unlike Mexicans and Central Americans?
I'm pretty sure there are people there who can easily afford long distance travels. However, I'm also sure aside from the country's elite there are few and far between. It's still a country where the minimum wage is $265 monthly.
