Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov was on his way back to Earth on Sunday along with an official match football that could be used later this month in the opening game of the World Cup in Moscow.

JEZKAZGAN, Kazakhstan-Astronaut Norishige Kanai displayed down-to-earth taste on his return from a almost half-year mission at the International Space Station, declaring a craving for simple steamed rice and miso soup.

A Russian Soyuz space capsule carrying three astronauts from the International Space Station has landed safely in the steppes of Kazakhstan. "We are glad the weather is sunny".

The ball, called Telstar 18, was taken to the ISS in March by the Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov.

According to the Russian agency TASS, that ball will be also used in the opening match of the World Cup, on June 14, in Moscow, although the information has not yet been confirmed by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

During his mission, Kanai conducted various scientific experiments in space and walked in space outside the International Space Station.

The Expedition 56 crew - Commander Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold of NASA, and Oleg Artemyev of Roscosmos - will operate the station and prepare for the arrival of three new crew members on Friday, June 8.

Tingle also completed a spacewalk to mend the station's robotic arm.

But one Kanai tweet in January caused confusion after he mistakenly claimed to have grown taller by nine centimetres just weeks after arriving on board the ISS.

NASA's Serena Aunon-Chancellor, Russia's Sergey Prokopyev, and Germany's Alexander Gerst, of the European Space Agency, will be the latest residents of the ISS.

The space laboratory has been orbiting Earth at about 28,000 kilometres per hour since 1998.
