Federation Internationale de Football Association chief says VAR use in World Cup is a success

Russian manager Stanislav Cherchesov said his side was disappointed after exiting the World Cup at the quarter-finals despite having made the country's best run at the tournament, TASS news agency reported yesterday.

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.

"I thank all the people in this country who have ensured the optimal hosting of the World Cup, the best of all times".

That would be problematic for the tiny kingdom, so Infantino is pitching a plan that would have Qatar share the World Cup with some of its Middle East neighbours.

"A lot of preconceived ideas have changed thanks to this World Cup", said Infantino.

"Everyone discovered a attractive country, a welcoming country, that is keen to show the world that everything that has been said before might not be true", he said.

Russia's coach, Stanislav Cherchesov, expressed hope that the World Cup has created momentum for development of football in the country, as Russian fans were super-charged by the team's surprising success.

Broadcasters have been ordered to stop their cameras zooming in on "hot women" in the crowd at football matches, Fifa's diversity boss says. That's because they would have clashed, one way or another, with the uniforms of the five opponents Croatia has played since.

According to Alexei Sorokin, the world Cup was extremely interesting.

Federation Internationale de Football Association is now finally coming to an end. The next four years were also discussed in a meeting held on Friday (13 July) between FIFA President Gianni Infantino and the managing director of the SC, H.E. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Thani. "This is the opinion of the fans, those who traveled across the country and the opinion of the TV audience", Dvorkovich said during a press conference.

The full schedule timetable of Qatar 2022 World Cup with the draw and fixtures will be announced later.

But one thing is for sure - Russian Federation might not have won the football trophy but is undoubtedly a World Cup victor off the field.

"It's been the strangest World Cup".
