FIFA Bribery Scandal: That Royal Wedding Snub In Full


For those of you who missed it, there was an excellent* article in the Evening Standard on Friday about the FIFA bribery scandal.  It reminded us all how the final presentation for England's failed World Cup 2018 bid was presented by the unlikely trio of David Beckham, David Cameron and Prince William, and how the three of them met Sepp Blatter in the process.

It continued...
Blatter has long been a hate figure in English football.  He has refused to adopt goal line technology, which could have helped England survive the group stage of last summer's World Cup after a "goal" by Frank Lampard was wrongly disallowed.

He was not invited to Prince William's wedding last month.
Also, spot the deliberate mistake regarding England's World Cup performance last year.


*well, I say "excellent"...
