ZURICH -UNS/ AFP – FIFA president Gianni Infantino on Friday said that “no match” is worth “risking a single human life” and that world football s governing body would be able to help financially national federations during the coronavirus pandemic.

Infantino insisted that games would not resume until it was safe.
“Our first priority, our principle, the one we will use for our competitions and encourage everyone to follow is that health comes first,” he said in a video message.
“I cannot stress this enough. No match, no competition, no league is worth risking a single human life.”
