London: Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore has reportedly expressed frustration over his organisation being blamed for England`s failure at major tournaments and has said that the Football Association is to be held accountable for it.

Scuadamore, on the recent allegations that Premier League is culpable for England`s failure, said that it frustrates him because the organisation is putting on a competition that the best players in the world want to come and play in.

In the recent criticism of the Premier League, England manager, Roy Hodgson, complained about two big matches, Liverpool v Manchester United and Arsenal v Tottenham, being moved to 1 September for live television five days before the national team play Moldova at Wembley in the first of two crucial World Cup qualifiers.

He further said that the idea of an England team going to be put together that will somehow beat the world is logically and mathematically implausible and further questioned the accountability of FA for England`s failures.

A report said that Scudamore is also determined to fight any attempt from FIFA to move the 2022 World Cup from summer to winter which President Sepp Blatter is aiming at.
