 The head of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, during the media conference at the start of the World Cup in Qatar, praised Albania for opening its doors to Afghan refugees.

Speaking to reporters in the Qatari capital, Doha, Infantino said that all European and American countries, North American countries, closed their doors, apologizing for not being able to.

"The only country that said we will bring them here because we know what it is to suffer and leave your country, was Albania. And my friend Edi Rama said that they are welcome here in Albania, where they can build a future. Thus, Albania opened its doors. Of all the countries, only Albania opened its doors to the Afghan refugees, who had to flee because they were playing football in Afghanistan," said Infantino.

The Prime Minister of Albania, Edi Rama, distributing inserts from this conference wrote that it is a moment of pride for Albania.

Otherwise, the head of FIFA, Infantino emphasized that it was about 160 girls and women, and not 1,600 or 16,000.
