A week of high level talks, giants falling off dreams, Football Planet returns to your screens with a show with packed fun.

In Nigeria, 17 African Football Associations have met to have a football intellectual feast. Their guests? Two of the most important people in Football now; FIFA boss Gianni Infantino and General Secretary Fatma Samoura.

Ghanaian FA head Kwesi Nyantakyi joined other colleagues for the all important meeting. He joins us for a chat.

At the same meeting, Infantino talks additional two World Cup finals slots for Africa should the tournament expand to 40 teams from 2026.
