FIFA has lodged a criminal complaint with the Swiss attorney general over “possible misconduct” by individuals in connection with the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

The move follows a recommendation by FIFA’s ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert as part of his findings into the Garcia investigation on World Cup bidding.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has insisted however that the lodging of the criminal complaint does not affect Eckert’s statement last week that the investigation into the bidding process for the two World Cups is concluded.

Football Association chairman Greg Dyke on Monday called for “urgent action” by FIFA members to ensure ethics investigator Michael Garcia’s report into World Cup bidding is published in full.
