SEPP BLATTER ON VERGE OF FIFA PRESIDENTIAL RE-ELECTION

Fifa president Sepp Blatter is on the brink of a fourth term in office after attempts to delay the election to govern the organisation failed.

The English and Scottish Football Associations wanted the election postponed amid allegations of corruption within Fifa.

English FA chairman David Bernstein put the proposal to Fifa's congress but 172 of 206 voters opted against a delay.

The vote to formally elect Blatter will take place later on Wednesday.

The English and Scottish FA's needed three quarters of Fifa's congress to support them to postpone the elecetion but they received little support with only 17 votes in their favour and 17 abstentions.

Bernstein was also criticised by fellow Fifa members following his address.
