Sergei Safaryan who took part in the work of the FIFA Congress in Zurich last Friday together with head of the Belarusian Football Federation Sergei Rumas said that the Belarusians were among the few who had an opportunity to personally congratulate Gianni Infantino on the victory. Sergei Safaryan also noted that Gianni Infantino's expected visit to Minsk will be timed to the opening of a new technical center for Belarus' national teams.
