FIFA President Gianni Infantino has claimed that the ongoing World Cup in Russia has been the best ever in the history of the game and appreciated the impact of VAR.
“Since a couple of years I was saying that this will be the best World Cup ever,” Infantino said.
“Today I can say it even more, with more conviction… It is the best World Cup ever. For this, I would, first of all, like to thank everyone, which was involved in the participation, the organisation of the World Cup.”
“The Russian people, a big, big thank you to Russia. A big thank to the Russian government, president Putin, of course, the organising committee, the Russian Football Union, everyone who was involved in this country to make sure this World Cup would be the best ever.”
“The World Cup has changed the perception of the world towards Russia. I think everyone who has been here for some time … has discovered a welcoming country.”
“VAR? Nobody is talking about VAR any more – and that is because it is accepted. It’s working and has worked well. The results, and we’re talking about facts, not words, perceptions, are extremely clear and positive. We can say offside goals are finished in football, with VAR.
