    FIFA vice-president savages plans to merge Asia's top posts Sport360 - Thu, Apr 17, 2014

    Prince Ali bin Al Hussein has savaged plans to hand his current role as FIFA vice-president to Asia's football boss in a row which threatens to plunge regional soccer into a fresh round of infighting. Four of football's six global confederations combine the role of regional president and FIFA vice-president, with the AFC and South America's CONMEBOL the two exceptions. Bahrain's Shaikh Salman was elected as permanent replacement for the scandal-tainted Mohamed bin Hammam last year in a move warmly welcomed by FIFA president Sepp Blatter. More »

    Brazil economy to feel scant benefit from Cup: Moody's AFP - Tue, Apr 1, 2014

    Although some sectors in Brazil will gain a boost from the World Cup, the tournament will not have a major economic effect, Moody's rating agency forecast Monday. Standard and Poor's last week cut Brazil's rating to one notch above junk status over sagging growth and inflationary pressures, although Brasilia insisted the South American giant's economy would repond "robustly." "(There is) some hope hosting the World Cup will help lift Brazil out of economic slowdown, but the associated economic activity ultimately pales before the country's $2.2 trillion economy, the usual levels of investment spending and the annual revenues of most companies," said Vice President and Senior Analyst Barbara Mattos. Brazil is spending upwards of $11 billion on hosting the tournament for the first time since 1950 but there have been public protests at the costs in a country whose infrastructure and services such as health and education require major overhaul.
