FA rejects Fifa criticism

The FA have reacted swiftly to quash claims by Fifa's ethics committee that they breached the rules in England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup.

England lost out to Russia in the 2010 vote but an 18-month investigation into the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups published on Thursday states that their attempts to win the support of former Fifa executive Jack Warner "violated bidding rules".

The story is too old to be commented.
