FIFA accepts 7 entries in presidential race

FIFA says there are seven official entries for the presidential election to replace Sepp Blatter, with former Trinidad and Tobago player David Nakhid not on the list.

Nakhid said this month he submitted his application with the required five nominations. However, Nakhid was left off the list of valid candidatures published by FIFA on Wednesday.

The seven are: Michel Platini, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Gianni Infantino, Tokyo Sexwale, Musa Bility, Jerome Champagne and Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa.

Platini’s candidature has been accepted pending a FIFA ethics committee investigation into financial wrongdoing.

The election is scheduled for February 26.
