Moscow witnessed MU triumph on Luzhniki pitch

Manchester has become the best European team after beating Chelsea on penalties 6-5.
      
      It was Moscows biggest sporting event since 1980. The city hosted 40 000 British fans, made visa- free regime, organized free buses from airports to the Luzhniki and back, and introduced very high-level security measures with 7000 militia officers guarding the stadium, let alone the forces in the city.
      
      The Chelsea and Manchester supporters are likely to be glad with coming to Russias capital to find the city modern, open and welcome to host them. The British fans doing sightseeing in the Red Square and Arbat St became a sight themselves, as Russian people liked to make photos of them or record them signing the Clubs songs.
      
      Moscow officials have marked rather ordered fans behavior, who represented not only Man U and Chelsea but the English football in general.
      
      The first Man U and Chelsea fans left Moscow already at night. At the moment about 15 thousand British are still staying in Moscow, who are expected to leave the city by the Thursday evening.
