FIFA president Sepp Blatter has called an emergency meeting of its executive committee ahead of the World Cup draw in South Africa to deal with the fallout from Thierry Henry's hand ball, violence at Algeria-Egypt games and match-fixing allegations in Europe.

FIFA said Monday the meeting would take place Dec. 2, two days before the draw in Cape Town.
