Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter attended a World Cup match in Moscow on Wednesday, saying the tournament in Russian Federation felt like "my World Cup", but soccer's world governing body said his presence did not directly violate his ban from football activities.
A FIFA spokesman said: "Banned FIFA head Blatter attending World Cup matches in Moscow does not constitute a breach of his ban".
He was banned from all footballing activities for making a dishonest payment to ex-UEFA boss Michel Platini.
It is understood Blatter, who is serving a six-year suspension which brought an end to his reign as president after 17 years in charge, will attend Wednesday's match between Portugal and Morocco.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday Blatter was visiting Russian Federation in a non-official capacity, and Blatter later said his meeting with Putin had not yet been confirmed.
"We have no further comment at the present stage".

Editorials have also urged the worldwide community to relieve sanctions against the regime as a reward for denuclearization. It marks the third time Kim has visited China since March , when he made his inaugural foreign trip as leader.
Nothing stops Blatter from buying a ticket or being invited to watch in a VIP area, and you didn't expect the notorious grifter to roll up to the box office.
"It is good to be a fan", Blatter said before posing for photographs with the laminated Fan ID card.
Blatter told The New York Times he would meet Putin during his trip, and why not?
"I think that England deserved to organise the World Cup. I'm here to enjoy the World Cup", Blatter told reporters before stepping inside a luxurious Moscow hotel.
Blatter gestured that he did not mean just Northern Ireland but the whole of the island.
The former Federation Internationale de Football Association president landed in Moscow to fulfil a two-year-old invitation from the host nation's leader.

For that to happen though, it is important that the iPhone be allowed to cross the USA and China borders unfettered by tariffs. Last week he threatened 25 percent tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese products with another $100 billion targeted beyond that.
The FIFA World Cup matches are going on in full swing.
Blatter still couldn't resist having a dig at Federation Internationale de Football Association, though, suggesting they have shown him a lack of respect.
"I am suspended and the suspension is as a Federation Internationale de Football Association president. I take the program they are offering to me, and I am happy to be here", he said. "I have known Blatter since 1980".
The total number rises to around 100,000 Chinese in Russian Federation when tickets allotted to Chinese companies as FIFA partners, World Cup sponsors and regional supporters are added.
And he insisted: "I am not corrupt".
