FIFA SAYS ENGLAND SHOULD STILL HOST CHAMPIONSHIP

game, FIFA officials said that the "hooliganism should not stop
England from playing host to next year's European Championship."
FIFA President Joao Havelange:  "Because of a localized problem,
which should be dealt with by local authorities, England does not
deserve to have a sporting right withdrawn" (AP/VANCOUVER SUN,
2/17).
