"Education, social integration ...”

"That's my project. Also education, development,...”

"You can with soccer, go forward showing honesty and cleanliness. And offering all these positions ...”

"We want to do just that.”

"I regret to not being able to collaborate, because I no longer play.”

"Me neither...”

The FIFA president went to the Vatican with his mother and his wife to support the "Match for Peace” organized by the papal foundation Scholas Ocurrentes.

The match will be played in Argentina on July 10th and the proceeds will go to this organization that promotes the integration and education of young people.
