France Wins World Cup and FIFA President Gianni Infantino Loves Russia

YEAH, it’s over.

Thankfully it is over.

The 2018 World Cup is over and France beat Croatia 4-2 in what can only be described as a typical Soccer game.

People ran up and down the field, fell down, and acted like they had been murdered.


The only thing I found interesting about this was that during the closing ceremonies the President of the World Soccer Club, FIFA, found himself gushing over Vladimir Putin.

Gianni Infantino was quoted by ESPN

At a Kremlin ceremony, Putin handed an official World Cup ball to Infantino who then handed it on the to Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani.

“Today I am a happy man… As far as I am concerned, we all fell in love with Russia. And I am sure in four years we will fall in love with Qatar,” Infantino said at the ceremony.

“It is football. It is passion. It is emotions. It is love. It is family. It is unity. These sentiments that we have felt here in Russia we [now] transfer to Qatar. And I am sure that this incredibly energetic and positive impact that football had in Russia, it will have in Qatar in four years.”

Putin said Russia was proud of its achievements in hosting the World Cup, and would share its experience with Qatar.

I guess soccer is all those things and I guess you could find it in Russia if they allow it. I’m sure Russia appreciates the love and will return all your things at the airport.

Enjoy your win, France. You deserve it.
