THE FA’s mission to win friends and influence people gathers pace this week when a delegation of top Chinese officials arrives for a series of tours and meetings aimed at improving relations between the two associations. The FA, stung by their humiliating defeat in the bidding for the 2006 World Cup, are determined to raise their profile on the global stage.

I believe Blatter has done some good things for football but now I believe that the time has come for change. ”
