0shares

FIFA President Gianni Infantino says they will be invited to come to London, where the world's best player prize will be presented on September 24.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino celebrated what he described as the "best World Cup" ever on Friday, thanks to the quality of football and organisation in Russian Federation.

The subject arose today in a review of FIFA's anti-discrimination program in Russian Federation.

Powar said the group has "documented more than 30 cases" of mainly Russian women being "accosted in the streets" by male fans but believes the real number of incidents is likely to be "10 times this".

Prior to the tournament, racism and homophobia were identified as areas if concern but Fair Network executive director Piara Powar said sexism was the main area of discrimination.

Our first goal has been completed, but the second one [to win] has not been fully fulfilled, " Cherchesov said, TASS reported.

Mobile phones and other devices can be used by the crowd, giving spectators the option of watching the World Cup final as well. England have progressed to their first World Cup semi-final since 1990.

It is common practice for broadcasters to pick attractive female fans from the crowd and zoom in on them during cutaways.

"I had for long said that this would be the best World Cup and now after living this celebration for a month, I can say with more conviction that this is the best World Cup".

During the singing of the national anthem before the game, some England fans shouted "no surrender" - an anti-IRA chant that has been heard before the team's games for many years.

Federation Internationale de Football Association and Russian organisers worked to identify fans linked to incidents of discrimination in Russia, and the most public violent incident was when Argentina fans attacked Croatia fans inside a stadium. This applied to all participating players at the FIFA World Cup.

"Sexy fandom" is celebrated as a form of individual expression and personal style, reinforcing the wider cultural expectations for young women to present themselves in sport contexts in ways that do not threaten men's primacy.

FIFA's decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar has been the subject of much controversy.
