XtraTime Web Desk:
The controversies which initiated by former FIFA President Sepp Blatter, finally comes to an end, as Gianni Infantino, the present FIFA President declares Russia to be absolutely ready for the FIFA World Cup 2018.

FIFA boss Gianni Infantino said on Thursday that Russia was "absolutely ready" to host the World Cup and thanked President Vladimir Putin for his commitment to the football showpiece.

Infantino met Putin in the Black Sea resort of Sochi as Russia races against the clock to put finishing touches on preparations for the 14 June - 15 July.

The first World Cup staged in eastern Europe will be the most expensive ever and comes in the heat of flaring tensions between Russia and the West.

It has also been shadowed by stadium construction delays and fears ranging from hooliganism to racist chants at matches.

But Infantino lavished praise on Russia's preparations and said the tournament was shaping up to be the best one yet.

"You are working to make this World Cup the best World Cup ever," Infantino told Putin during a nationally televised meeting.
