LONDON, June 20. /TASS/. Britain did not exhibit its entire potential to win the bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with the chief executives of the leading global news agencies in St. Petersburg, the Press Association reported.

"Great Britain did not exhibit all their potential" required to win the World Cup bid, Putin said.

"We don't think we are guilty of anything. We fought for the bid fairly. We don't think the decision can be changed. Construction of the stadia has begun and the next World Cup is very soon," he said. "We wanted to win. We won through legal means."

Matches of the World Cup will be held from June 14 to July 15, 2018 at 12 stadiums in 11 Russian cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Yekaterinburg, Samara, Sochi and Rostov-on-Don.
