Obama Plans to Attend World Cup Ceremonies 2010

The 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, will be in attendance at next summer’s World Cup, says FIFA President Sepp Blatter.

This comes after FIFA’s top man formally invited Obama to the tournament which will be played in South Africa a year from now.

“He accepted,” Blatter told a small gathering of reporters in Johannesburg, South Africa. “But you know that heads of state are extremely busy. Hopefully his schedule will allow him to attend.” Goal
