Earlier this month, FIFA's sixth operational visit to Russian Federation to review World Cup stadia was declared "fruitful and productive" by the body's chief competitions and events officer, Colin Smith. We have received several requests from countries around the world for 2019.

The council also ruled on the establishment of the FIFA Foundation, which will act "as promoters of FIFA's aims and objectives related to social development", and which will be operational in early 2018, FIFA said in a news release.

Asked if after hosting a successful U-17 World Cup, where the attendances have been staggering and on the cusp of creating a world record, the chances get enhanced for India to host the U-20 tournament, Infantino said: "I don't know".

The bidding process for 2026 World Cup and discussions on the vexed issue of Israel-Palestine football stand-off will also be discussed.

"This year, there have been two World Cups in Asia - South Korea [U-20] and India [U-17]".

"The FIFA Council takes note of the documents adopted by global governmental bodies concerning the relationship between Israel and Palestine - such as United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, which comprises recommendations without sanctions - but has decided that it should not take any position on their contents", a statement published today read.

Next up for Leicester is a game against fellow strugglers Everton, so the manager could fancy his side's chances. He said: "I like to take in the history of anywhere I go - it's important to get a feeling for the fans".


The FIFA Council is expected to announce the winning bid by March in 2018.

The Confederations Cup is held in the year before a World Cup and features the respective national team champions of each continent.

Infantino said the future of the Confederations Cup, played quadrennially the year before the World Cup in the host nation, will be taken into consideration to see if there is a better alternative.

"The idea is to embed the idea and culture of football into the minds of the people".

"We saw when the semi-final was moved to Kolkata and the ticketing system broke down because we had 100s and 1000s of requests".

The Club World Cup, played annually in December, features the winners of the six continental confederations' cup winners, along with one team from the host country. In football, because of the benefits the game brings and it's not just about organising a short competition, it is about bringing boys, the youth and women from schools to do some activities on football pitches. "If FIFA is serious about its idea of developing football around the world, we will have no other choice than to take into account and help the development of Indian football, which houses one-sixth of the population of the world", Infantino remarked. Football has to be sustained in India because the whole world will benefit from it and not only India.
