FIFA pleased with 2018 World Cup organization
FIFA president Gianni Infantino said he was confident the 2018 World Cup would be impeccably organized.
"I have rarely been so relaxed about the organization of an event," he said. "Russia wants to show to the world that it a welcoming country where people can come to celebrate and enjoy football... I have never seen a country that has done so much for the welcoming of fans as Russia is doing."
Referring to the hooligan threat, he said: "Everything is being done to ensure Russia will offer a safe environment," Reuters reported.
