I blame Putin

FIFA president Gianni Infantino has long believed the Russian-hosted 2018 World Cup would be the best ever and his stance has not changed as the tournament unfolds.

“Since [a] couple of years I was saying that this would be the best World Cup ever; today I can say it with even more conviction because I lived it and you lived it. It is the best World Cup ever,” Infantino said in the opening remarks of his news conference in Moscow on Friday.

In addition to the organizers and participants of the tournament, the FIFA president offered special thanks to the Russian government, President Vladimir Putin, and the Russian people, saying “Spasibo Rossiya” (‘thank you Russia’ in Russian).

Infantino also said the World Cup has been “a big success,” and that this year’s event has changed “two things” – Russia itself and the perception of the world towards it. “The legacy of this World Cup will put Russia on the top of the countries in terms of football around the world,” he said, regarding the infrastructure built for the event.

I don't think this is the best world cup ever, it's been really entertaining but I think that is down to the top teams not really performing that well and the games being closer as a result.
None of the top players have consistently lived up to their reputations, except maybe Mbappe and Pogba for France.
