German Chancellor may visit PNG

German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, could make a surprise visit to PNG during the hosting of the FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup.

The visit, however, will be a reality if the German Women’s Soccer team make the final of the Under 20 Women’s World Cup.

Minister for Sports, APEC and National Events, Justin Tkatchenko made the announcement after being informed by FIFA officials.

“Apparently she’s very keen on sports and promotes her country right around,” said Tkatchenko.

If it does eventuate, it will be the first time in history a German leader visits PNG.

Tkatchenko, however, did confirm that FIFA President, Giani Infantino, will be in the country during the tournament.
