When Infantino was doing Champions League draw with a sweaty Peter Schmeichel, I bet he never thought he'd be Fifa president the same season— alistair magowan (@alistairmagowan) February 26, 2016
Infantino will now do the FIFA draws, right? That's is how this works.— Diana Kristinne (@DianaKristinne) February 26, 2016
