"I am impressed with what is going on in football in this country, not only with staging the FIFA World Cup but also the Russian Football Union's plans when it comes to football development," Infantino said, according to the FIFA official website.
Infantino also visited the Luzhniki Stadium, where the final game of the World Cup will take place.
"Inside you can feel the atmosphere of football. It's great to see that outside the historic parts have been preserved, while inside it will be a state-of-the-art football venue-the right setting for the game's most important tournament," Infantino said upon his visit to Luzhniki.
After his visit, Infantino said that the 2018 football tournament in Russia will be the best FIFA World Cup in history.
The only question that Infantino had was whether he would speak better Russian than Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko would speak English in 2018.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be held from June 14 to July 15 in 11 Russian cities, including Moscow, Ekaterinburg, Kaliningrad, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Saransk and Volgograd.
