    SOCHI (Sputnik) — FIFA President Gianni Infantino was largely impressed with his visit to the Fisht Stadium in Russia's Sochi which hosts the Confederations Cup, "Russia-2018" Local Organizing Committee Venue Manager Andrey Markov said Tuesday.

    On Monday, the German football team defeated the Australian team with a score of 3:2 at the Confederations Cup in Sochi. Infantino became the guest of the match, but before the game he examined the stadium.

    "I personally accompanied Infantino at the Fisht stadium. We walked through all the zones of the stadium. He was impressed and satisfied with conditions provided for all FIFA's client groups. We worked hard in order for everyone to feel comfortable," Markov said.
