    导出博客文章GOA, India -- Asian soccer leaders rebelled against FIFA on Tuesday, calling off their extraordinary congress and postponing the election of three representatives to the new FIFA Council. Vapormax Plus Blanche Femme .The Asian Football Confederation said the congress lasted only 27 minutes after member countries voted 42-1 against the agenda. The decision comes two days after FIFA barred a Qatari candidate from running for a spot on the council.The congress in Goa had been called to elect three officials to join existing AFC members from Japan, Kuwait and Malaysia, as well as President Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa of Bahrain, on the 37-member FIFA Council.The congress has spoken with one voice and that has been clear for us all to see, Sheikh Salman said. FIFA President Gianni Infantino, I am not sure if you have been at a shorter congress but I think you can see the strength of opinion in the room.Only Singapore voted in favor of the agenda. The countrys candidate, Zainudin Nordin, was set to benefit from his Qatari opponent being excluded.The increase of the FIFA Council to 37 members, chaired by Infantino, was a key part of reforms at the scandal-hit world body and was approved on the same day in February that the former UEFA secretary general beat Sheikh Salman for the presidency.Today the AFC and Asian football has shown solidarity, Sheikh Salman said. The message has been clear to everyone both inside and outside Asia.The AFC later held an emergency executive committee meeting, where Chinese candidate Zhang Jian was added to the committee until the next extraordinary congress. Dates and a venue for the rescheduled election will have to be ratified by FIFA.FIFA ethics judge Hans-Joachim Eckert earlier this month opened a case against Qatar Football Association vice president Saoud Al-Mohannadi, who was one of four men seeking one of the new seats from Asia on world soccers ruling council.FIFA prosecutors asked Eckert to ban Al-Mohannadi for no less than two years and six months for not telling the truth and not cooperating properly with an ethics investigation. But Al-Mohannadi said at the time he was confident of a fair review and that he had cooperated candidly. The case does not involve Qatars 2022 World Cup bid, but no further details were provided by the FIFA ethics committee.FIFA announced Sunday it had barred Al-Mohannadi from running in the election based on an ethics committee report, leaving Zhang, the Chinese soccer association secretary general, running against Ali Kafashian of Iran and Nordin of Singapore for two of the three FIFA Council seats from Asia.The third seat from Asia has been reserved for female candidates, with Moya Dodd of Australia running against Han Un Gyong of North Korea and Mafuza Akhter of Bangladesh.The AFC president, who ran for the top job in soccer against Infantino in the wake of the scandals that rocked FIFA last year, said stalling the election wasnt designed to delay any reform agenda.There is no argument between us and FIFA, Sheikh Salman said. I think we will be the first supporters of the FIFAs reforms ... but we need to be fair and just as well.It is unclear what the effect of Tuesdays turmoil will have on an Oct. 13-14 meeting of the FIFA Council in Zurich with Asia now below its quota of delegates.The session was set to look in detail at the 2026 World Cup, with the United States and Canada among potential hosts. Infantino made an election campaign promise to add eight teams to create a 40-team tournament.The issue of when Asia could next host a World Cup is also up for debate with China eager to bid as soon as possible. A current FIFA rule that bars confederations from back-to-back hosting means China can next be a candidate for 2030.However, FIFA could also propose a two-tournament gap for confederations -- knocking European bidders out of the 2026 contest but also pushing back Chinas ambitions to at least 2034.

Jordan Lynch, the all-purpose Heisman Trophy finalist from Northern Illinois, failed to make it into that exclusive club. BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Ben Kennedy moved past NASCAR Truck season leader William Byron with 19 laps to go and held at Bristol Motor Speedway on Wednesday night for his first series victory.Kennedy, the son of International Speedway Corporation CEO Lesa France Kennedy and great-grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., became the first France family member to win a NASCAR national series race. He was making his 63rd career start.I cant put it into words, Kennedy said. Someone asked me earlier today what its like going to Bristol for your first time and to win here is just so cool. Im speechless. The guys gave me an awesome truck. Everyone at GMS Racing, Jacob Companies, the fans in the stands, everybody watching on TV, gosh this is just the coolest day of my life.Byron, a rookie won has won five races this season, looked as he would make it six when he took the lead from teammate Daniel Suarez with 21 laps left. But Byron went high into a turn and Kennedy was able to sweep past him. Kennedy had to hold on through a restart with seven laps to go, fending off Brett Moffitt the rest of the way for the victory.I was just thinking go as fast as possible on this last lap, Kennedy said. I knew Brett was putting pressure on me from behind. I appreciate him racing me clean. This is just so cool. These guys deserve it. They work so hard.The victory locked up a spot for Kennedy in the series eight-driver championship chase that begins in New Hampshire next month.Daniel Hemric was third, followed by Byron and Johnny Sauter.Kennedy had not led a lap all season before moving in front on a damp night at Bristol. The races start was delayed more than an hour when storms hit the area. When the green fflag dropped, it looked as if Christopher Bell and Suarez had the strongest machines. Nike Vapormax Promo. ach, though, couldnt sustain things.Bell led a race-high 101 of 200 laps until spinning out while racing Suarez up front. Suarez led 77 laps until he was passed by Byron.Bell held on for seventh, while a late spin dropped Suarez to 29th in the 32-car field.WHOS HOT: Byron has not cooled off. The rookie driver followed up a win at Pocono, his fifth of the season, with a fourth-place run at Bristol. It was his eighth top-10 finish in 13 races this season.WHOS NOT: Two-time series champion Matt Crafton continued his disappointing summer, going only 70 of 200 laps before having to leave the track after he said something broke. Crafton started the season with six top-10s, including two victories, over the first eight races. Hes had only one top-10 finish in the past five times out and was dead last at Bristol, his worst finish of 2016.THAT WAS FAST: Pole-sitter Tyler Reddick qualified at 128.917 mph, nearly 2 mph hour quicker than the 12-year-old qualifying record held by Ken Schrader since August 2004. Reddick led nine drivers who finished under Schraders speed in setting the grid for the truck race at Bristol Motor Speedway.WET WEATHER: The start was delayed more than an hour because of rain. A caution came out early on Lap 28 when drizzle began to fall. NASCAR had scheduled a competition caution 40 laps in to see if the machines would be affected by the soggy conditions.UP NEXT: Michigan International Speedway, Aug. 27. Kyle Busch is the defending race winner.
