Sepp Blatter Calls For More Berths From Asian Countries At Future World Cups
Published May 6, 2013
BRITAIN FIRES BACK: The PA's Martyn Ziegler reported Britain FIFA VP Jim Boyce "will oppose a threatened move" by Blatter to "cut the number of European places at future World Cups." Boyce insists Europe's 13 spots out of 32 "is a fair proportion given the continent's influence on football." Boyce said, "Europe plays a very significant part in world football, and I believe 13 places in the World Cup is a very fair reflection of that.
