In a letter written last Friday, FIFA boss Gianni Infantino, invited ZIFA president Philip Chiyangwa to the 2018 World Cup final in Moscow, Russia next month.
Chiyangwa will be part of the guests drawn from the leaders of the national associations to watch the World Cup final. Part of the letter reads:
Mr Philip Chiyangwa, ZIFA president. We both know that the FIFA World cup is much more than a 32-team tournament. It is the pinnacle of world football for everyone who loves and takes part in the beautiful game. As such, I consider it’s a duty of FIFA to ensure that those who represent football’s worldwide reach — the 211 Member Associations and their presidents — are all present for its crowning moment, the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Therefore, I would be truly delighted to have you, as president of a Member Association, join me at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on 15 July, when the world champions will be crowned.
