Cameron bemoans state of FIFA

AP

LONDON — British Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday urged FIFA to be more accountable, saying its credibility hit an "all-time low" during the recent bribery scandal.

Cameron has been concerned about the state of world soccer's governing body since being exposed to what he described as, the "murky" world of soccer politics while trying to secure backing for England's ultimately unsuccessful bid to host the 2018 World Cup.

Answering questions in the House of Commons on Wednesday, Cameron criticized the re-election of Sepp Blatter as FIFA president for a fourth term last week without facing any opposition.
