FIFA panel looks to improve World Cup in 2014

FIFA is creating a task force to suggest ways of making football

more exciting at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

FIFA President Sepp Blatter says he wants ”a more attractive

World Cup” than he saw in South Africa, which had too many

goalless draws.

Called ”Task Force Football 2014,” it will look at new ways to

decide group-stage matches and how games are refereed.

The panel will include members of FIFA’s Football, Technical and

Development, Medical and Referees committees.

Blatter says the task force will miror the one set up after the

low-scoring 1990 World Cup in Italy.
