Besides praising Russian Federation for a successful tournament, Infantino can expect questions about the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, the $25 billion Club World Cup and the role for the top female FIFA official, Fatma Sasoura, who has rarely been heard from during the tournament.

A bonus for the Croats as they prepare for their nation's first World Cup final: They finally get to wear their unmistakable checkered jerseys again.
In recent months, speculation has mounted whether Qatar may host a 48-team World Cup after all, putting further pressure on the Gulf State, who have been geopolitically isolated by neighbour Saudi Arabia.
"Of course, the political attitude towards us isn't going to change after the World Cup but people have definitely changed their view".
The Swiss also revealed he was pushing ahead to expand the competition to 48 teams for the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Then we will decide calmly and quietly what the decision is.
Infantino's views on Russian Federation 2018 were echoed by many in the room at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, with several reporters prefacing their questions with their own positive assessments, but the FIFA president was not given an entirely comfortable ride.
The tournament, a resounding off-field success, has also witnessed a European domination with two traditional South American powerhouses knocked out in the last-16 and the quarterfinal, while Japan was the only Asian country to make it to the knockouts and Infantino agreed that more work needs to be done.
"I will be happy if it stays at 32 teams as previously established". For the moment we have a World Cup with 32 teams.
"We hope to overcome all the difficulties", he said.
Infantino sees participation in a World Cup as a powerful tool to help grow the sport in developing countries.
"Croatia, who are in the final, they had to go to a playoff".
"It has been delightful to see the wide variety of people who have visited us from all around the world".
Sexism has been one of the core issues at World Cup 2018. Egypt ranked 30 and with last season's English Premier League Golden Boot victor, Mohamed Salah, in their fold, was tipped to edge Russia for the second spot, with Uruguay clearly seen as the favourite to clinch the top position in the group.Against the Pharaohs, Russia was able to keep Salah quiet and scored three goals to fly high and build expectations slowly.
