FIFA says that Blatter, whose is Roman Catholic, will meet the pope in Rome on Nov. 22.

The pope, who was elected in March, grew up as a supporter of Argentine club San Lorenzo in his native country.

Blatter wrote to him then, saying ''we have learned that Your Holiness is a passionate follower of our sport and of a club nicknamed `The Holy Team' no less.''

The pope also hosted Lionel Messi in August ahead of an Italy-Argentina friendly organized in his honor.
