During the World Cup closing press conference in Moscow, Infantino revealed that Federation Internationale de Football Association are yet to decide the number of teams that will compete at the 2022 World Cup, whether there will be 48 or 32 sides participating.

"But the truth of the matter is that on the way they really got a taste of the World Cup". "Italy, Holland, Chile - the champions of South America - and Cameroon, who are the champions of Africa". "More participation means more quality and Mexico, the United States and Canada are going to organise a great tournament [in 2026]".
And on volunteers, he said we are all volunteers sometimes, every sports federation uses them at big events and the volunteers in Russia did it willingly to show their pride in Russia.

"It has been delightful to see the wide variety of people who have visited us from all around the world".
Once the Moscow final between France and Croatia has been played Sunday the focus will firmly shift onto the first World Cup in the Middle East, with all its opportunities and controversies.
