Another vital part of the 22nd world cup that has generated much buzz is the final number of teams participating in the tournament. The next four years were also discussed in a meeting held on Friday (13 July) between FIFA President Gianni Infantino and the managing director of the SC, H.E. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Al Thani.

But while any seat in the house would be good enough to witness such a spectacle, all throughout the tournament, there has been a select group of fans fortunate enough to experience the World Cup from the ground...

Federation Internationale de Football Association has asked World Cup broadcasters to stop zooming in on pretty women in the stands during matches, the BBC reported on Thursday.

So was pre-World Cup Russia misunderstood or have we been hoodwinked by a slick PR offensive?

"We will discuss 48 or 32 teams for the next World Cup over the next few months, firstly with Qatar and then with the Federation Internationale de Football Association council".

The Qatar World Cup in 2022 will be played from November 21 to December 18 for the first time in history.

"Hopefully we'll continue to do the same things that we've done during the World Cup and it will change Russian Federation and change attitudes towards Russian Federation".

He added that Russian Federation would continue to be a "football country" after the tournament, as the game has become an integral part of the country. A vote was expected at the FIFA Congress in June, but no vote occurred and in the next few months there should be a decision, Infantino said.

FIFA has warned the Football Association about fan behaviour after "political chants" during England's World Cup semi-final defeat to Croatia.

SEXISM HAS been a bigger issue than racism at this year's World Cup, according to reports from anti-discrimination experts.

"There is nothing more powerful than participating in an event like the World Cup to boost football in a country".

"Those who know me a little bit know that when I'm in front of such gifted players, who make us all dream, I can not say any negative words about them".

"Of course, the political attitude towards us isn't going to change after the World Cup but people have definitely changed their view".
