Fifa is keen on cracking down on broadcasters cutting to the crowd and zooming in on young female fans at major tournaments, including the ongoing World Cup in Russian Federation in its efforts to curb sexism in football.

Infantino also thanked the government, President Vladimir Putin and the Local Organising Committee.

"It is an incredible, awesome World Cup".

Sporting a FIFA volunteers' jacket, Infantino told reporters in Moscow that Russia's infrastructure and welcome allied to the quality of football and success of VAR (the video assistant referee system) had contributed to the success of the tournament.

"This country, Russia, has changed".

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

What are England fans singing?
Former EastEnders star Harry Reid posted about both the World Cup game and Pride London, taking place on the same day. The Three Lions was originally released for the European Championships in 1996 when it topped the charts.

"For now it's a World Cup with 32 teams but everybody is open-minded and we will have a frank and open debate". Belgium came through after beating Japan with a goal in the 94th minute. "The results, and we're talking about facts, not words, perceptions, are extremely clear and extremely positive", Infantino said.

He explained that this close cooperation with other testing agencies allowed a significant increase in the number of tests on participating players. "We really wanted to go further, we were one step away from reaching the semi-finals", he added.

FIFA's decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar has been the subject of much controversy. The image-hosting platform took down the gallery after critical response and even issued an apology for the same.

"VAR is not changing football, it is cleaning football, making it more honest and transparent and helping referees to make the right decisions".

FIFA president Gianni Infantino has invited the young team rescued from flooded caves in Thailand this week to world football's player of the year awards show in London on September 24.
