DOORS CLOSING, TRAIN LEAVING STATION STORY: As the Russian national team has taken the country's soccer to a new level by securing itself an early exit from Group A at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Moscow Metro has also brought the sport to a new level - 60 to 80 metres deep below ground.

More than 1600 screens were installed in Moscow metro coaches earlier this year.

The main purpose of the screens was to show passenger information and local news, but for the duration of the biggest soccer tournament in the country's history, the screens were re-programmed to broadcast soccer matches live.

Moscow residents and fans from across the globe said they welcomed an opportunity to watch the world's best teams playing while commuting.

"It's a joy ride," said Moscow resident Bek Usmanov.

"I use the metro a lot, and time flies thanks to football.

I am a passionate fan, and it is very useful to me." Metro deputy chief Roman Laptypov said they can tell some commuters get caught up in the action on screen - especially on Moscow's circle line, a loop of 12 stations encircling the city centre.

"We see that some of the passengers enter the metro when a match starts and they go around until the match ends.

So the circle line now is extremely popular with some of the fans," Laptypov said.

The World Cup continues until July 15.
