Just like every Sunday, we whet your appetite with a sneak peek at what is on the menu on FIFA.comin the coming days.

To kick-start the week, we will be revisiting the fascinating story of the very first FIFA World Cup™qualifying match, which was contested between Sweden and Estonia in Stockholm on 11 June 1933. From the backdrop to the match, how the game unfolded and what the consequences were, will leave no angle of this landmark event unexplored.

Also on Monday, you can enjoy an exclusive interview with USA women's national team coach Jill Ellis, a world champion and Olympic gold medal winner with the Stars and Stripes. There'll be another women's exclusive coming on Wednesday, with Argentinian international Marianela Szymanowskiwill be speaking about all the barriers that she has had to overcome to succeed and the obstacles that still have to be surpassed for women's football to blossom in Argentina.

That won't be the day's only must-read exclusive interview, as you will be able to hear Joachim Low's thoughts about taking his native Germany to the FIFA Confederations Cup in June, when the pressure will be firmly on the world champions. The Tournament of Champions will also be the focus of our conversation the following day with legendary Russian figure skater Evgeni Plushenko, who is serving as an ambassador for one of the competition's host cities, Sochi, and will be discussing his love of football.

That will not be the only talk about Russia this week, with 2018 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying back on the horizon. On this note, we will be catching up with Luxembourg's Maxime Chanot, who is known for his knack of scoring against the big nations, and Iraq captain Alaa Abdul-Zahra, who is hoping to help his country to turn things around after a disappointing start to their campaign.

Have a great week of football on!
