Blatter's 17-year spell in charge of world football's governing body ended amid a corruption scandal in 2015. The 82-year-old is now serving a six-year ban for unethical conduct after Federation Internationale de Football Association was rocked by a global corruption scandal in 2015.
Despite being banned from all football-related activity for another three and a half years, there Blatter was watching Ronaldo light up the Luzhniki Stadium with his fourth goal of the tournament.
The voting process for those tournaments is now tainted by suspicions of corruption.
Argentine government security official Guillermo Madero, who is in Russian Federation, told The Associated Press that the fan "won't be able to enter stadiums at the tournament and he won't be able to watch World Cup matches".
His appearance at the World Cup in Russian Federation is potentially embarrassing for FIFA and its new head, Gianni Infantino, who has promised to draw a line under FIFA's corruption problems and clean up the organization. See no evil, hear, yadda yadda.

But life as a whole is whatever Johnson now wants to make of it, and she isn't taking one moment for granted. Kardashian West tweeted that her phone call with Alice Johnson was "a moment [she] will never forget".
Blatter attended Portugal's 1-0 win over Morocco in Moscow, where the losing side felt that a number of decisions went against them and were then not overturned by VAR. Court documents show they were sentenced on Wednesday.
"There will be a lot of contenders (for 2030) but they will deserve it, and Scotland, Wales and the Irish - why not? - should be in, too, because that would be a better candidate for a 48-team World Cup".
Good thing he has stayed true to form in his time away from the cameras - Blatter is still a bumbling buffoon, and bungled most of his answers in the Channel 4 interview when repeatedly pressed about the allegations he is facing.
"It is his World Cup now", said Blatter.
The 82-year-old struck a defiant tone in Moscow, describing the criminal probe as "an attack on FIFA" and saying he was still president of the organization.
