London: English Football Association (FA) chairman Greg Dyke has dubbed the FIFA report into World Cup corruption as pointless and a joke.
Dyke pointed that the report was "erroneous" as he believes that the report contains the criticisms of only those who co-operated with the investigations. He further said that the report contains "numerous materially incomplete and erroneous representations", The BBC reported.
Though the report cleared the corruption allegations leveled against Russia and Qatar, it has slammed the FA for faulting bid rules. Rejecting FI FA to be a straight organization, he said that the level at which football operates has to be suspected.
Based on the findings of American lawyer Michel Garcia, a 42-page document was published on Thursday by German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert. Dyke also demanded for Garcia's report to be published in full, which is believed to be more than hundreds of pages.
