The ultimate fan experience at the 2018 FIFA World Cup

Sexism bigger problem than racism at World Cup, anti-discrimination body says

FIFA President Gianni Infantino on Friday hailed the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation as the best ever.

Russian Federation on Sunday hosts the closing match of a World Cup praised by football's governing body, FIFA, as the "best ever", with finalists France and Croatia squaring off in the capital, Moscow.

"The domestic championships have already been informed of this decision, which is a good decision because we cannot play football in June and July in Qatar", Infantino said at the traditional tournament overview media conference.

"Maybe, through FIFA and football, we could bring countries together and allow them to start having dialogue".

According to reports, the tournament in Qatar will be played from November 21 to December 18 in 2022.

Turning one of Trump's derisive comments back at the president, Tusk said that "whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news ". But doing so, Huntsman cautioned, "doesn't necessarily mean that the Russians are going to follow through".

Ahead of the final in Moscow between France and Croatia, Putin has met at the Kremlin with Qatar's emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino.

Infantino reported that what is not yet confirmed is how many teams will participate.

"VAR is not changing football, it is cleaning football, making it more honest and transparent and helping referees to make the right decisions".

Allegations of bribery and corruption swirled around FIFA's decision in 2010, where the Russians triumphed amongst others against a rival bid from England.

Before the World Cup began, many feared that it would be marred by racism.

The cameramen only have two more games to keep it in their trousers, though, as the World Cup 3rd place game between England and Belgium is on Saturday, with the final between France and Croatia coming on Sunday. "No decision has been taken as of now and we still have a World Cup with 32 teams", he said.
