France's interior minister said on Sunday he backed UEFA's threat to sanction England and Russia if their fans repeated the violence seen over the last few days in Marseille and urged hosting cities to consider a ban on alcohol around match days. "It is absolutely necessary that the national federations whose supporters create incidents of this nature be punished for what happened inside the stadium, and also outside," Bernard Cazeneuve told a news briefing. A spokesman for the ministry clarified that the minister was not specifically calling for the two countries to face sanctions, but that he was merely supporting UEFA's decision to warn Russia and England over their fans' future behaviour.

Real Madrid were crowned European champions for an unprecedented 11th time when Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning penalty in a 5-3 shootout victory over Atletico Madrid on Saturday. The Champions League final had finished 1-1 after extra time with Sergio Ramos having bundled the ball home to give Real the lead in the 15th minute. Antoine Griezmann missed a penalty at the start of the second half for Atletico when he fired his shot against the bar. Atletico, beaten in their two previous final appearances, including the most recent against Real in 2014, suffered a series of let-offs before substitute Yannick Carrasco rifled in the equaliser in the 79th minute to send the game into extra time. Juanfran missed Atletico's fourth penalty in the shootout and Ronaldo converted to seal victory for Real. "What an amazing feeling," Real forward Gareth Bale said. "We showed resilience and what we are made of. It was a war of attrition. I cannot describe how it feels. More»

FIFA named an African woman with no experience in soccer administration as its second most powerful official on Friday, part of changes made by the sport's ruling body to move on from a major corruption scandal. However, FIFA's Congress also passed a resolution which gives its board, known as the FIFA Council, the power to fire the heads of its independent committees at almost any time. The Congress also voted to accept Kosovo and Gibraltar as the organisation's 210th and 211th members, opening the way for them to take part in the 2018 World Cup qualifying competition. Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura of Senegal, the United Nations Development Programme Resident Representative in Nigeria, was appointed as secretary general and will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the organisation. "FIFA is taking a fresh approach to its work and I am eager to play a role in making that approach as effective and lasting as possible," she said in a statement. Samoura's appointment was announced by president Gianni Infantino, hosting his first Congress since he was elected in February to lead the scandal-plagued federation out of its crisis. "Fatma is a woman with international experience and vision who has worked on some of the most challenging issues of our time," Infantino said. "Importantly for FIFA, she also understands that transparency and accountability are at the heart of any well-run and responsible organisation." The Congress was the first since FIFA passed a raft of reforms aimed at avoiding a repeat of the corruption scandal that has seen 42 soccer officials and entities indicted in the United States. WATCHDOG COMMITTEES FIFA has three independent watchdog committees but on Friday the Council was given the power to appoint or "dismiss any office holders of these committees", something that could only previously be done by the annual Congress. This effectively gives the Council the right to fire ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, ethics investigator Cornel Borbely and audit and compliance chairman Domenico Scala but Infantino dismissed suggestions that it was a loss of independence. "We are trying to appoint the right people, people with high credibility, and the only change is to give the flexibility to the Council to dismiss and appoint members if the Council feel it is needed," said the president. Although the next Congress is scheduled for October, it can be convened at short notice. Infantino said FIFA would show "no mercy" to any federation that misused money allocated to it for football development. "Don't betray us, use it for football," he told Congress. Infantino added the FIFA Council had agreed to end Indonesia's almost one-year suspension from international football, imposed because of government interference in the country's football federation. The Congress voted to continue the suspensions of Kuwait and Benin over the same principle. FIFA's statutes demand that national football associations are completely independent of their country's governments. Samoura, 52, replaces Frenchman Jerome Valcke who was fired in January and has since been banned for 12 years for ethics violations that included using FIFA expenses for sightseeing trips and destruction of evidence. Her appointment was suggested by Infantino and approved by the FIFA Council. Samoura began her United Nations career with the World Food Programme in Rome in 1995 and has served as a representative or director in six African countries. More»

Leicester City completed one of the greatest-ever sporting achievements on Monday when the 5,000-1 underdogs won the Premier League for the first time. Leicester players were crowded around a television inside top-scorer Jamie Vardy's house as they were handed the title by closest challenger Tottenham being held to a 2-2 draw by deposed champion Chelsea. With an insurmountable seven-point lead over Tottenham with two games remaining, Leicester is champion of England for the first time in its 132-year history. "Championes! Championes! Ole! Ole! Ole!" the jubilant Leicester players sang as they jumped up and down with their arms on each other's shoulders inside Vardy's house. "Nobody believed we could do it, but here we are — Premier League champions and deservedly so," Leicester captain Wes Morgan said. "I've never known a spirit like the one between these boys, we're like brothers." Just two years ago, Vardy and many of his teammates were playing in the second tier and then came close to instantly dropping out of the Premier League. They started this season as among the favorites to be relegated again. But on Monday night fans who never dreamed their modest club in city with a population of 330,000 would conquer wealthier rivals descended on Leicester's King Power Stadium to party into the night. "People saw it last season when everyone expected us to be relegated, but we fought back to prove people wrong," Morgan said. "This season's been a continuation of that. We've built on the momentum, but I don't think anyone believed it would come to this." Leicester, which will collect the trophy on Saturday when it hosts Everton at home, had not even finished higher than second since 1929. English soccer has not had a first-time champion of the top flight since Nottingham Forest in 1978. And for the last 20 years the Premier League trophy has never left London or Manchester, with Arsenal, Chelsea, United and City sharing the trophy between them. Unlike that title-winning quartet or 1995 champion Blackburn, Leicester has achieved its success without lavish spending on its squad. Chelsea's draw also ensured Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri became a league title winner for the first time in his career, 12 years after the 64-year-old Italian was fired by the Blues. "Let's do it for Ranieri," read one Chelsea fan's banner during Monday's game at Stamford Bridge where the trophy was presented to Chelsea last May. "It's the greatest achievement in the history of English football and it was led by an Italian," Matteo Renzi, the Italian Prime Minister, tweeted. Leicester missed a chance to seal the title on Sunday when it was held to a draw by Manchester United but Chelsea ensured the party wasn't delayed any longer. Tottenham had to win at Chelsea to keep its bid for a first title since 1961 alive and led 2-0 thanks to goals from striker Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, before Chelsea staged a second-half fight back to draw in a fiery London derby where tempers frayed and tackles flew in from everywhere. "What a game," Leicester defender Robert Huth tweeted. "Makes me look like an angel! CHAMPIONS!!!" Center half Gary Cahill pulled a goal back for Chelsea early in the second half, and with Tottenham clinging on, the equalizing goal was scored by Eden Hazard. Hazard's goal was almost a year to the day since his strike won the title for Chelsea, which is 29 points behind Leicester. Chelsea's collapse has been as astonishing as Leicester's surge to the top of the standings it was bottom of last April. Ranieri called Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink to thank him for Chelsea's part in delivering the title to Leicester, which is owned by Thai retail giant King Power. "(Ranieri said) five times 'Thanks', because of the emotion," Hiddink said. "I didn't see any tears because it was not a Facetime conversation, but his voice was trembling a bit." One bookmaker, Sky Bet, said it paid out 4.6 million pounds ($6.8 million) to punters who backed Leicester to win the title, with 128 putting money on the team at 5,000-1. No sports team has defied such odds to triumph and Leicester's improbable success has provided a feel-good story for a country divided as it prepares to vote on whether to remain in the European Union. "Many congratulations to Leicester," British Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted. "An extraordinary, thoroughly deserved, Premier League title." More»

World governing body FIFA has threatened to suspend the Egyptian Football Association following a court ruling to dissolve the elected board of the EFA. Last month's ruling cited violations in the 2012 electoral process but is yet to be implemented. However, FIFA warned Egypt that any interference in football affairs is strictly prohibited. FIFA sent a letter to the EFA saying "sanctions will be considered, including suspension" if the court verdict takes effect. "The EFA asks that all involved parties involved not to discuss this issue until it is resolved to ensure that the Egyptian national teams and clubs keep playing in the continental competitions," the association said. EFA Chairman Gamal Allam said he was ready to resign to spare Egypt any such problems. More»

The executive board of the Egyptian Football Association was dissolved according to a court ruling Sunday over suspected rigging of 2012 elections. The verdict is final and cannot be appealed. The case dates back to a lawsuit filed in 2013 by the president of the second division football team Bani Ebeid, Hermas Radwan, challenging the integrity of the voting process in the association's 2012 elections. The regular four-year elections of a new board are set to take place in September 2016. The current Executive Director of the Board Tharwat Sweilam is expected to direct the association till September. The court verdict comes just two days before Egypt are to take on group rivals Nigeria in the African Cup of Nations group-stage qualifiers at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab Stadium. More»
