However, FIFA President Sepp Blatter says he will not be drawn on the issue until the findings of an ongoing investigation are revealed.

Blatter said: "Again, the executive committee has said, we do not put into question the World Cup in Qatar, and we are now waiting for the results of the investigation which has been made by an independent authority."

Asked specifically if he thought a re-vote should take place, were corruption allegations to be proven, Blatter said: "I am not a prophet. That's all.

"We wait for the results and we will see what will happen."

Prime Minister David Cameron says England is available to host the 2022 World Cup if is taken away from Qatar.

Speaking at the G7 summit, Cameron said: "We should let the investigation run its course.

"But, of course, England is the home of football, so we are always happy to provide a home for such sports."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling


he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

Hodgson: Barkley was brilliant


o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
