Prime Minister Narendra Modi met FIFA President Gianni Infantino, who gifted him a football jersey with his name on its back. Mr Modi, who met Infantino on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit in Buenos Aires on Saturday, shared a picture of the blue jersey, with his name on the back on twitter.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, it is impossible to come to Argentina and not think about football. He said, Argentinian players are tremendously popular in India. 

During ''Yoga for Peace' event on Thursday, Prime Minister Modi had elaborated how football connected the two countries. He said, If Argentina is interested in India's philosophy, art, music and dance, then there are millions of fans of the Argentine soccer stars in India. Maradona has now become a household name and also used in many vernacular phrases.

FIFA, which describes itself as an international governing body of association football, is responsible for organising major international soccer tournaments, notably the World Cup.
