European football chief Michel Platini on Thursday will announce if he is to stand against Sepp Blatter in next year`s FIFA presidential election.
Former England striker Gary Lineker has accused world football`s governing body Fifa of "nauseating" corruption and said the decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar was "ludicrous".
FIFA has reportedly dismissed the comments of the football governing body`s secretary general Jerome Valcke that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be held in the winter months that year, instead of the June-July tournament originally scheduled.
FIFA boss Sepp Blatter condemned European media for "attacking" 2022 World Cup hosts Qatar Tuesday, days after slamming European countries and companies over the controversial tournament.
UEFA President Michel Platini is willing to reschedule Europe`s football calendar to allow the 2022 World Cup in Qatar to be played in the winter.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter said for the first time on Friday that he ‘expects’ the 2022 World Cup in Qatar to be held in winter rather than the traditional summer months of June and July.
Sepp Blatter said he personally supported the idea of the 2022 WC in Qatar being held in winter.
