FIFA has released the official World Cup poster for Russia 2018 - and it's safe to say the design has gone down well with football fans.

Featuring legendary Russian goalkeeper Lev Yashin - the only shot-stopper to win the Ballon d'Or - the poster boasts a distinctively retro look.

It was designed by renowned Russian artist Igor Gurovich, and was unveiled in Moscow ahead of Friday's Final Draw for the 2018 World Cup.

The chairman of the Russia 2018 Local Organising Committee Vitaly Mutko, added: "It was very important for us to portray Russia as the Host Country in the Official Poster.
