FIFA President Re-Elected

Hosted by

FIFA has re-elected its president -- but in a much tighter race than expected. World soccer officials voting in Zurich, Switzerland today were divided on whether to give Sepp Blatter a fifth term amid the corruption charges that have been plaguing soccer’s world governing body this week. Although the first round of voting was inconclusive, Prince Ali bin Al Hussein conceded to Blatter.  James Montague covers the sport for World Soccer, CNN and BBC World Football. He's also the author of On the Road With Football's Outsiders: A World Cup Odyssey.
