FIFA SAYS ENGLAND SHOULD STILL HOST CHAMPIONSHIP
Published February 17, 1995
In wake of the recent riot at the Ireland-England soccer 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a localized problem, which should be dealt with by local authorities, England does not deserve to have a sporting right withdrawn" (AP/VANCOUVER SUN, 2/17).
