FIFA president Gianni Infantino caused a stir by snubbing various Premier League glamour ties to watch the Canaries' Championship tussle with Millwall.

He was in London, where he had been taking part in a football conference.

But rather than head to the Emirates to watch Premier League leaders Arsenal take on Bournemouth, or Chelsea host Leeds at Stamford Bridge, he opted for the Den.

It turned out to be a good choice, as City came from behind to triumph against their play-off rivals in a thrilling game.

News of his presence at the match spread on social media and then he was seen acknowledging the home fans before the kick-off. 

Infantino, 52, has been in London this week to attend the annual International Football Association Board conference.

At the meeting, he touched on a number of subjects, including his desire for the 100-minute matches seen at the World Cup to become routine in club football in an attempt to cut down on time wasting.
