Infantino said Trump "assured us of all his commitment and cooperation to make it successful".

"This for me was really the most important message of the day, seeing and feeling how he but also the whole White House as such is really into this organisation of the World Cup. This makes us feel very positive for the next eight years until 2026,'' Infantino added.

The US women's team are the current world champions and Infantino invited Trump to attend the Women's World Cup Finals in France in 2019.
