The first semi-final of the Confederations Cup is being held in Russia's Kazan city on Wednesday. European Champion Portugal is playing against Chile, the strongest team of South America.
Although Portugal is closer to Russia than Chile, which is in the other end of the world, capital of Tatarstan Kazan is predominantly crowded with Chile fans. The paths leading to the fan zone, streets and pitch are all overflowed by them. The number of Chile fans in Kazan is currently over 30,000.
6,000 people have arrived from Chile, the rest being from Europe. They are holding banners with words of gratitude to Russia for hosting them.
