"Infantino will unveil the U-17 World Cup emblem as well as the new All India Football Federation (AIFF) logo during his trip to India," confirmed AIFF General Secretary Kushal Das to Sportstar.

The Extraordinary Congress, agreed by the AFC Executive Committee chaired by AFC President Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa in Mexico City, will elect the three additional AFC members to the FIFA Council, one of whom shall be a female member.

The FIFA president's arrival comes at crucial time for Indian football as the country prepares to host the Under-17 World Cup - the biggest football tournament to take place in Indian soil.

Das also confirmed that Infantino will only stay in the country for a day and therefore doubts still remain as to whether he will be able to make it for any match in the on-going AFC U-16 tournament in Goa.
