Gianni Infantino says: “For years, English football fans have been debating about the struggle to develop young players – and then you realise you are watching this rock-solid team, filled with talent, lifting the trophy as world champions. It does not get any more auspicious than that.

PANINI COLLECTORS
Visitors to the FIFA World Football Museum in Zurich can feast their eyes on over 4,000 stickers (going back as far as the 1970 World Cup). A report on collectors, faces and sideburns.

BENFICA
