FIFA calls extraordinary meeting after controversies

9:35 am on 24 November 2009

FIFA has called an extraordinary meeting following Thierry Henry's handball incident which eliminated Ireland from the World Cup finals, and the announcement last week of a major match-fixing investigation into European football.

The meeting, which might also consider crowd trouble before and after the Egypt-Algeria World Cup decider, will be held in Cape Town on the second of next month.
