FIFA, the FA, Blatter and Qatar's World Cup...


In a statement released by the FA it said: "The FA board has today [Thursday] agreed to abstain in the vote of the presidency of Fifa. There are a well-reported range of issues both recent and current which, in the view of the FA board, make it difficult to support either candidate. The FA values its relationships with its international partners very highly. We are determined to play an active and influential role through our representation within both Uefa and Fifa. We will continue to work hard to bring about any changes we think would benefit all of international football."

 The bribery allegations, carried by the Sunday Times, concern the successful bid by Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup earlier in the year. The British paper claims that Qatar's 2022 bid team paid bribes of around £920,000 to three executive committee members of Fifa to secure their vote, allegations that have been denied by all the implicated parties.
