Warner claims he voted for England bid

England only got one vote plus their own delegate Geoff Thompson’s vote on Thursday.

Reports claim six members of the FIFA executive pledged their support and Warner was one of them.

Warner told a close friend after the vote on Thursday, according to The Sunday Mirror: “Everything England did was brilliant. Their presentation was great.

“I voted for them in that opening round. Geoff Thompson is a good friend. I honoured my promise until England went out.”
