FA attacked as Blatter re-elected
The Football Association has come under attack for "lying and complaining" as Fifa president Sepp Blatter was re-elected for a fourth term.
The FA and the Scottish FA attempted to postpone the vote, in which Mr Blatter stood unopposed, accusing world football's governing body of a lack of transparency and accountability.
Prince William, the FA's president, and Prime Minister David Cameron both backed the FA's stance.
But even Wales and Northern Ireland chose not to support England's failed attempt to stop Mr Blatter's "coronation" and the motion was defeated by 172 to 17.
Fifa members then lined up to attack the FA, which was looking increasingly isolated.
Senior vice-president Julio Grondona, the Argentinian head of Fifa's finance committee, told the congress: "We always have attacks from England which are mostly lies with the support of journalism which is more busy lying than telling the truth. This upsets and disturbs the Fifa family."
He continued: "It looks like England is always complaining so please I say will you leave the Fifa family alone, and when you speak, speak with truth."
The humiliation continued with the leaders of associations from Haiti, the Congo DR, Benin, Fiji and Cyprus all speaking out against the FA's move.
Mr Blatter was then voted in during a bizarre secret ballot of the organisation's 208 member associations. One by one, Fifa members entered the wooden voting booths, stuffing the ballot boxes in favour of the 75-year-old - the only name on the blue voting slips.
The results of the election showed 203 out of 208 members voted, with 186 votes for Mr Blatter.
