Infantino re-elected FIFA president for four-year term

Gianni Infantino was Wednesday re-elected president of FIFA for a four-year term until 2023 and hailed a brighter future for football's governing body after corruption scandals threatened its survival.

"In just over three years, this organization went from being toxic, almost criminal, to being what it should be: an institution that develops football," Infantino told its congress in Paris.

"This new FIFA has a mission and a plan for it, which is why the next four years have, in fact, already started: we have laid solid building blocks for the future."

The 49-year-old Swiss was elected by acclamation as the sole candidate.
