Platini and Blatter disagree over World Cup spots….

Blatter told football executives from North and Central America and the Caribbean yesterday their confederation “should” be awarded another World Cup place for the 2018 tournament in Russia given their success in Brazil last summer. “If Blatter wants to give one more slot to a confederation that reaches one time the quarter-final, what will he give to us, who have [the last] three world champions?” says Platini.
