World Cup stewards will be punished after final disrupted by pitch invaders

Croatia fell short in their first World Cup final, but the FC crew explain what made the Vatreni's run so impressive.

The chief organiser of Russia's World Cup says stewards will be punished after protesters ran onto the pitch during the final.

Organising committee CEO Alexei Sorokin told Russia's Sport Express newspaper "we will make [the stewards] ashamed" after four members of the Pussy Riot protest group and punk band ran onto the pitch dressed as police officers.

The game was briefly stopped as stewards chased the protesters, one of whom shared a high-five with France's star forward Kylian Mbappe.

Sorokin said the stewards face "disciplinary measures" and suggested they backed down because of instinctive respect for police attire.

"We all grew up respecting the uniform, you have to agree," he said. "Yes, the stewards were unprofessional, but it's not fair to accuse them too harshly. The people who ran onto the field were too cunning."
