2018 World Cup In Russia 'Best Ever': FIFA Head Gianni Infantino

World football's governing body Fifa confirmed that the Qatar World Cup in 2022 will be held in the winter.

"This is progress, this is better than the past", he said.

The president, who was elected to replace Sepp Blatter in 2016, revealed that "leagues around the world have been informed already" and stressed FIFA's strict position on this announcement, by adding that 'of course they will have to adapt'.

Federation Internationale de Football Association is cracking down on television broadcasters focusing on good looking female fans while airing the 2018 World Cup, an official said this week.

Al Thawadi also addressed apparent concerns over cultural differences that would meet World Cup fans in Qatar - in particular over the issue of alcohol, whose sale and consumption is restricted in the Middle Eastern nation.

"VAR is not changing football, VAR is cleaning football, making football more honest, more transparent", he said.

The Argentinian team did not have a good World Cup and lost 3-4 in the round of 16 to France, who will play in Sunday's final against their Croatian counterpart.

Donald Trump's kind-of, sort-of apology to Theresa May
However, under the blue skies of the Chequers' garden, he said their relationship was "the highest level of special". As for Johnson, Trump said: "I think he would be a great prime minister ".

Indeed, the former UEFA general secretary believes the days of goals scored from an offside position or red cards for violent conduct could both be coming to an end due to the video assistant technology.

Infantino said that the expansion of the tournament from 32 to 48 countries will change the panorama.

"It has been the best World Cup in history because football has been the main talking point, with only one match finishing 0-0", he admitted.

"We had 98 percent occupancy of the stadiums, one million fans from overseas to discover this country, more than three billion viewers on television and there will certainly be one billion for the final".

"This is one of the activities that we definitely will have in the future - it's a normal evolution", Addiechi said when asked whether it was now an official policy.

As things stand, the Qatar World Cup will be the final version of the tournament with 32 teams before expanding to 48 for the 2026 tournament in the United States, Mexico and Canada.
