Infantino LOL
Good to see Russia are doing their best to rid their game of racism.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Russians are not racists.  They just hate outsiders.  What is wrong with that?

When you read stuff like that it amazes me some people think they won't give America the 2026 WC because of Trump

This US Dept of Justice (DoJ) indictments of various FIFA lads for corruption is still going on. Today, the president of the Guam football association pleaded guilty to 2 counts of wire fraud and not disclosing a foreign account. This lad took 2 bribes of 100k to vote for somebody in the FIFA elections, and some 850,000 from over the years in corrupt payments. The money came from an account in Qatar. Hmm. 

No big deal really. Except that the court documents named 2 Co-conspirators. One of whom is the OCI's (Kuwaiti) Sheikh Ahmad Al Sabah, a big shot in the OCI, and less well known around here than he should be. Turns out he is the same lad who paid Pat Hickey's bail money to get him out of Brazil..........



Nothing to see here I suppose.

@RobHarris

Infantino invokes Trump at FIFA Congress: "There is a lot of fake news and alternative facts about FIFA circulating."

Infantino at FIFA Congress invokes Trump's "America First" inauguration line: "Football will always be first





Basically we now have a thinner younger version of Blatter

I don't see the issue with either of those quotes.  I'm sure the fake news quote was just to add a bit of humour, and football should always be first at FIFA.

You must be blind if you don't see what he's inferring. He's exactly like Blatter and he's trying to insinuate the media are making stuff up about FIFA
