'Best World Cup group stage ever': FIFA's Infantino


STORY: Infantino cited the big upsets, fans, games and goals as he voiced his hope for the tournament to continue entertaining as it moves on to the quarter-final phase with clashes like Netherlands v Argentina and England v France on the horizon.

The 2022 World Cup was the first in history to see teams representing the six inhabited geographic continents all make the knockout phase, an indication Infantino said "shows that football is really becoming truly global."

Infantino said more than two billion viewers had already tuned in to the tournament, with that figure expected to rise to five billion views by the tournament's end.
