As Chile and Germany gear up for the Confederations Cup final, Friday served as travel day for the sides ahead of the St Petersburg showdown.
Claudio Bravo’s shoot-out heroics put Chile in a third major final in as many years at Portugal’s expense, while Germany’s young guns blew Mexico away on Thursday.
Both Mexico and Portugal will have a shot at redemption in the third-place play-off, although Cristiano Ronaldo – newly a father to twins – will not be present for the Selecao.
Final tweaks will be made on Saturday, but before then here’s a snapshot of the goings on across Russia on social media…

Claudio Bravo, presumably without his bag after having to leave it on the runway, strikes a pose. Seems like a strange crush to get a picture of the back of his head, mind.
