FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, confirmed Friday at the final Press Conference on the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation that football leagues around the world had been informed on time for them to adjust their calendars to suit the tournament.

The FIFA World Cup has changed the perception of Russian Federation among all countries as the visitors have discovered a hospitable country, full of people who are keen to show to the world that what sometimes is said is not actually what happens here, FIFA president Gianni Infantino said.

"The national leagues will have to adjust their calendars".

"There's nothing more attractive, as a professional football player, than to play in the World Cup final", he said at the pre-match news conference.

That would be problematic for the tiny kingdom, so Infantino is pitching a plan that would have Qatar share the World Cup with some of its Middle East neighbours.

"A lot of preconceived ideas have changed thanks to this World Cup", said Infantino.

"First we will discuss with the Qataris and then with the FIFA Council and stakeholders and decide calmly what the decision is".

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

The Russian team, too, came out of the tournament having passed with flying colors.

Over the past six weeks, 180 professionals appointed by Qatar's Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) have been shadowing and observing the 2018 FIFA World Cup operation in the 11 Host Cities.
