~~  The statement below says it all…..

Bonita Mersiades, the former Australia 2022 executive who also gave evidence to Garcia on three occasions under condition that her anonymity would be protected, has also submitted a formal letter of complaint to him. “It says much about Fifa and those inside their tent that they felt it necessary to engage in a denigration of the two women who had been courageous enough to say something,” said Mersiades in an article for the Guardian.

German Football League President Makes Serious Statement Against FIFA

Filed under: FIFA, Soccer News

~~ Said it before and I’ll say it again, this report WILL become public…. There’s just TOO much there (with people calling for the full release and the uproar after Eckert’s ‘summary’ report) for someone not to leak it to the public somehow….

via Guardian

The president of the German Football League has warned that Uefa’s 54 member nations could take the ultimate step of quitting Fifa if Michael Garcia’s report into World Cup bidding is not published in full.

Dr Reinhard Rauball laid bare the tensions within Fifa over the split between the ethics committee judge, Hans-Joachim Eckert, and Garcia, the US attorney who heads the investigatory arm and spent 18 months probing the race for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Garcia has disowned Eckert’s summary of his 430-page report, which effectively cleared Russia and Qatar.

“The result was a breakdown in communication, and it has shaken the foundations of Fifa in a way I’ve never experienced before,” said Rauball.

“As a solution, two things must happen. Not only must the decision of the ethics committee be published, but Mr Garcia’s bill of indictment too, so it becomes clear what the charges were and how they were judged,” he told the German website kicker.de.

“Additionally, the areas that were not evaluated [in the report] and whether that was justified [should be published]. It must be made public. That is the only way Fifa can deal with the complete loss of credibility.”

“If this doesn’t happen and the crisis is not resolved in a credible manner, you have to entertain the question of whether you are still in good hands with Fifa,” Rauball added. “One option that would have to bear serious consideration is certainly that Uefa leaves Fifa.”

Republic of Ireland Releases Robbie Keane Back To LA Galaxy

~~ Psst… Martin O’Neill…. If you knew you were going to release Robbie Keane back to the LA Galaxy AFTER the Scotland game and not have him involved in the US Game, wouldn’t it have made sense to play him against Scotland? And not waste his time flying from LA?!?!
