Former England boss slams Fifa over World Cup decision

Former England boss Graham Taylor has slammed Fifa over the World Cup voting process.

Taylor admits that nothing about Fifa surprised him any more.

"I'm just surprised that we're surprised," Taylor told the BBC. "Fifa is an organisation that doesn't have to answer to anyone. What did we expect?

"Fifa for me is full of people who say 'yes' to your face and 'no' behind your back. Their reputation has not changed over many years.

"England have had little or no influence. We are considered to be arrogant and know-alls."
