Sexism bigger problem than racism at World Cup, anti-discrimination body says

Infantino confirmed that the 2022 competition will kick-off on November 21 with the final set for December 18, with leagues around the world given advance notice so they can construct a plan to cope with a long break in the middle of a regular campaign.

More than 25,000 football fans have visited activations organised by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) in Gorky Park, Moscow, as part of its 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar promotional campaign, sc.qa has reported. However, considering the ruthless summer heat of Qatar, the dates were changed.

"It will be a common decision taken between Federation Internationale de Football Association and Qatar and we are now studying the feasibility of expanding it to a 48-team World Cup". We must have discussions with the Qataris and then, if there is a possibility, we will talk about it with the FIFA Council and stakeholders.

"We will decide whether it's 48 or 32 teams in the next few months", he said.

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.

"It is hard to think of the World Cup without VAR, it has been certainly a more just competition..."

There is no doubt this tournament both on and off the pitch has been an eye opener - how much of that can be attributed to the host's organisation and how much to the unpredictable results of numerous games is hard to quantify.

"I think that everyone who has been here for quite some time - around a million people have been in Russian Federation, not only Moscow, not only Saint Petersburg, not only Kazan, but in all the host cities - everyone who has come here has discovered a handsome country".

But despite concerns, Powar said: "There haven't been a great deal of incidents of the type we expected".

"I think the World Cup has changed the perception of the world towards Russian Federation", added Infantino.

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

The VAR is not changing football.it's cleaning it up and making it more honest and transparent, and helping referees make the right decisions, ' Infantino continued.

- Project Russia: Which fans are left at the World Cup? That's history now. And for the first time there has been no red card for violent play, largely because players know that there are cameras in place to catch everything they do, ' he added.
