England Threatens World Cup Boycott Over Sepp Blatter Re-Election

England is considering boycotting the World Cup after Sepp Blatter won a fifth term as president of world football’s governing body.
Blatter beat his rival, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, in a secret ballot to continue as head of FIFA, despite calls for him to resign as the organization is engulfed by allegations of bribery.
Greg Dyke, the head of the Football Assocation, said England should consider pulling out of the World Cup.
In comments backed by the Prime Minister, Dyke has also called for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosting votes to be rerun – which may open the door for England to be awarded one of the tournaments.
Before the decision, David Cameron had called on Mr Blatter to quit as president.
