Living Football | FIFA World Cup medics, Desailly goes green & a special Panini story

By | November 1, 2022

The latest episode of Living Football ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ puts the spotlight on some important issues, including one that will warm the heart of any football lover.

Andrew Massey, FIFA's Chief Medical Officer, discusses the various processes that will be implemented at the World Cup, in particular, FIFA's new Concussion Medical Protocol, whereby a substitution for concussion, or suspected concussion will be permitted, in addition to the five statutory substitutions.

Former FIFA World Cup winner Marcel Desailly, who has dedicated himself to environmental protection since his retirement, calls for a focus on the importance of recycling during the tournament. Naturally, he also shares his memories of France's title winning campaign in 1998.

Finally, Living Football focuses on Pedro, a young Brazilian boy who, despite his blindness, did not give up his passion for World Cup stickers and came up with the idea of adaptation of the Panini album in Braille. As Alessandro Villa, FIFA's Licensing Manager explains, his idea kick-started something much bigger.
