The English FA Will Back Gianni Infantino In FIFA Presidency Bid

FA Chairman Greg Dyke has confirmed that the Football Association will vote for Gianni Infantino at the FIFA presidential election on February 26 as the UEFA general secretary is one of five candidates to replace Sepp Blatter and has recently received the support of a number of European nations, with up to 40 set to vote for him.

Infantino became Europe's leading candidate for the role when UEFA president Michel Platini was forced to end his campaign following an eight-year ban from all footballing activities imposed by the game's governing body. Infantino also has the support of UEFA's executive committee and appears to be the chief rival to favourite Sheikh Salman of Bahrain, president of the Asian Football Confederation. Infantino FIFA manifesto includes the provision of a World Cup to be held across an entire region, rather than just one or two nations.

Tokyo Sexwale, Jerome Champagne and Prince Ali Al Hussein are the other three candidates to take over from Blatter, with a decision due on February 26 at FIFA's extraordinary congress in Zurich.
