FIFA Gets New President

Gianni Infantino

Goals from Robert Ssentongo and second. half sub have given URA FC a 2-0 win over Police FC at the Mekhta stadium in Lugazi.

Ssentongo broke the deadlock in the 38th minute finishing off after a quick counter attack involving Kyeyune and Derrick Tekwo that passed through Nicholas Kagaba on the right wing who then sent a low cross for Sentongo to finish off.

Most of the first half was a test to both sides with successive counter attacks characterized by physical tackles culminating into a total of 25 fouls awarded to both sides.

Police came close to an equaliser but Umar Bulega’s effort died off after Savio Kabugo intercepted from behind but efforts from the bench alarming for a penalty were waved off by the centre referee.

Coach Kefa Kisala introduced Shafiq Kagimu for Derrick Tekwo in the 75th minute. The substitute added the second goal with three minutes remaining from a rebounder from Nkugwa’s failed shot.

The tax collectors have now leapfrogged the policemen to the third place. They play Bright Stars next while Timbe’s side face SC Victoria University.

Football chiefs in the world have voted Gianni Infantino to take over the most powerful seat in football in elections held at an extra ordinary meeting in Zurich on Friday 26.

Mr Infantino, cure http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-d1f0365774344725149b5e8974265855.php who was the secretary general of UEFA, http://cbvsalvail.ca/wp-includes/class-requests.php received 115 out of a possible 207 votes in the second round of voting in Zurich.

The Swiss won  the first round of voting but without the necessary two-third majority to secure an immediate victory. He received 88 of the 207 votes with Sheikh Salman three behind on 85.

Prince Ali gained 27 and Jerome Champagne, http://class-actions.us/wp-admin/includes/export.php a former French diplomat who had previously worked for FIFA.

The Swiss will replace disgraced former chief Mr Blatter, who has been suspended for six years for ethics violations after 18 roller-coaster years in charge.

He will be taking over the chieftaincy at a time when the image of the world body has been tainted with cases of corruption, racketeering and money laundering.

Actually, the Swiss authorities are investigating the bidding process surrounding the 2018 and 2022 World Cups while numerous officials have been indicted in the U.S over allegations of racketeering and money laundering.

Blatter, who won a fifth term in office last May before laying down his mandate on June 2, has since been banned from all football-related activities.

The elections
At the beginning of the proceedings, it was confirmed to the Congress that 207 FIFA member associations were entitled to vote (the member associations of Indonesia and Kuwait could not vote due to their respective suspensions).

The candidate Tokyo Sexwale withdrew from the election after his address to the Congress.

Before the elections, , the Extraordinary FIFA Congress approved a set of landmark reforms to FIFA’s governance structure, including improvements to the governance of global football, a clear separation of commercial and political decision-making, greater scrutiny of senior officials, and commitments to women in football and human
rights.
