BTS’ Jungkook continues to impress Gianni Infantino. The FIFA president has once again expressed his admiration for the “Dreamers” singer. Infantino claims that Jungkook’s performance at the 2022 FIFA World Cup is the best opening ceremony ever.

Jungkook Praised By FIFA President Gianni Infantino For ‘Best Opening Ceremony’

Gianni Infantino recently posted about the 2022 FIFA World Cup, celebrating the event’s success back in December. In his post, the president of the sports federation reminisced about announcing the World Cup’s opening. Infantino also shared memorable images from the event including a photo of Jungkook performing during the opening ceremony.

“Five months ago today, I had the privilege of announcing the opening of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar and what a great spectacle it turned out to be!” Infantino wrote. He added, “The BEST opening ceremony was followed by the BEST FIFA World Cup ever!

Jungkook wrote the song “Dreamers” for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He released the song ahead of the event before performing the single with Qatari singer Fahad Al Kubaisi at the opening ceremony. The BTS maknae is the first South Korean artist to sing an official theme for the World Cup and perform at an opening ceremony at the same time. The opening ceremony also featured appearances from veteran actor Morgan Freeman and Qatari YouTuber Ghanim Al-Muftah.

This isn’t the first time that Gianni Infantino has praised Jungkook’s performance at the World Cup. In December 2022, the FIFA president called the “Left and Right” singer “incredible” and claimed his performance was “truly remarkable.”

Jeon Jungkook has been busy since his performance at the 2022 FIFA World Cup opening ceremony last year. He was recently announced as the new global ambassador for American fashion house Calvin Klein. The BTS maknae is actively promoting the brand and appears in the current campaigns for Calvin Klein Jeans and Calvin Klein Underwear.
