England would launch World Cup bid if Blatter was ousted - Dyke

Football Association chairman Greg Dyke says England would consider launching a fresh bid to host the World Cup if Sepp Blatter was removed from his position as Fifa president.

FA vice-chairman David Gill was appointed as Fifa vice-president on Tuesday and Dyke has indicated that the presence of the former Manchester United chief executive could persuade England to again put forward a proposal to stage the tournament, though he is adamant that such a bid will not be made while Blatter is in power

The story is too old to be commented.
