Reuters reports that the Iraqi Football Association (IFA) has pledged its support for Jordan’s Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein (pictured) in next month’s FIFA presidential election.
IFA president Abdul Khaliq Masood said:
“We have decided that Iraq’s vote will go to Prince Ali because Prince Ali has always supported the development of football in Iraq, Jordan and our region.”
He will stand against Asian Football Confederation President Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, former FIFA deputy general secretary Jerome Champagne of France, South African businessman and politician Tokyo Sexwale, and UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino.
