FIFA president Infantino celebrates ‘best World Cup’ ever


MOSCOW, July 13, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – FIFA president Gianni Infantino
celebrated what he described as the “best World Cup” ever on Friday, thanks
to the quality of football and organisation in Russia.

“I was saying this would be the best World Cup ever, today I can say it
with more conviction… it is the best World Cup,” Infantino told reporters
in Moscow two days ahead of the final between France and Croatia.

Infantino told Russian president Vladimir Putin in a meeting at the
Kremlin last week that the world “fell in love with Russia,” over the past
four weeks.

And Infantino said preconceived notions of the country had been changed
by the positive experiences of more than one million fans who had visited.

“A lot of preconceived ideas have changed thanks to this World Cup,” said

“Everyone has discovered a beautiful country, a welcoming country, full
of people keen to show to the world what maybe sometimes is said is not what
happens here.”
