Warner performs U-turn to back England's WCup bid

BY foxsports • November 28, 2009

FIFA vice president Jack Warner has apologized for denigrating England's bid to host the World Cup in 2018 and says British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has convinced him to back the campaign.

Warner, who is a powerful member of the 24-man FIFA executive committee which will decide the 2018 and 2022 hosts in December 2010, had dismissed England's bid as lightweight during a visit to London last month.
