Next week on FIFA.com

The resumption of 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ qualifying is around the corner and FIFA.com will be ramping up the anticipation over the next week. To set the tone, on Monday we'll be bringing you an interview with Jorge Djaniny, who tells us about Cape Verde Islands' ambition to cap their recent climb by clinching a spot at the global extravaganza.

Faroe Islands coach Lars Olsen is not setting his sights quite so high, but on Tuesday you can find out about his delight with his charges' own progress in the last few years. The day after that, we'll have Pablo Escobar's thoughts on Bolivia's upcoming matches.

On Thursday, like every week, FIFA.com will be looking back at a legendary episode that left a mark on World Cup history. Azerbaijan coach Robert Prosinecki and the Peru defender Christian Ramos will be talking shop on Friday, while we will also be taking you to Scotland and Slovakia over the weekend as part of our qualifying build-up.

Where women's football is concerned, club and international round-ups will be headed your way on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively, to be followed on Thursday by a recap of the latest activities in the Live Your Goals programme. Meanwhile, on Saturday, German legend Birgit Prinz will be sharing some of her World Cup memories, in addition to discussing the current state of the female game in her homeland and beyond.

Speaking of Germany, the country is also making moves in futsal, with the German national team taking their first steps and already brimming with ambition. The lowdown on these developments and Iran's recent performances are two other things you can look forward to later this week.

Needless to say, you;ll also be able to enjoy all of your favourite regular features over the coming days, plus a steady supply of statistics, videos and photos. Have a fantastic week full of football on FIFA.com.
