Committee meet to discuss World Cup bid criticism

England 2018 chiefs will meet on Tuesday to consider the criticism of their campaign made by FIFA vice-president Jack Warner last week and the storm that followed. At least two leading figures involved with the bid believe that Warner's explosive comments were damaging and consideration needs to be given to a re-think.

Warner, the CONCACAF president who controls three of the votes on FIFA's 25-man executive committee and is an influential figure generally, described England's bid as "lightweight".

The directors will now have to determine whether to make any changes following Warner's remarks or keep on the same track.
