Gianni Infantino, the Fifa president was accompanied by a delegation that included Fifa Secretary-General and General Delegate for Africa Fatma Samoura, Fifa Deputy General Secretary, Mattias Grafström, Fifa Legend and special advisor to CAF President Samuel Eto’o and Fifa Foundation CEO and Fifa Legend, Youri Djorkaeff.

Infantino said: “Mozambique is football, and I am extremely happy to be back in Maputo, four years after my first visit when I was a candidate for the presidency of FIFA.

“I am honoured to witness the signs of progress made during this period, in a country which gave football two of the biggest players in the history – Eusebio and Mario Coluna.
