Infantino: There are many lessons Qatar can learn from Russia
FIFA President Gianni Infantino believes that there are many lessons Qatar can learn from Russia in preparing the 2022 World Cup.
"The first one is how to welcome so many people – 1.5 million people headed to Russia to enjoy the World Cup and they were all welcomed in a way that was unexpected to many," the FIFA head stressed.
He said that there were many fears about Russia, but it turned out to be a very "safe World Cup, a very welcoming World Cup, in a country that made fans feel good."
"The whole population contributed to that and I’m sure the same will happen here in Qatar. The Russian World Cup has been the best ever but the World Cup in 2022 in Qatar – I am sure – will be even better," AS English cited him as saying.
