New Delhi:

A day after a barrage of allegations were made against a few of FIFA officials, the Football Association has said that it can give evidence to support it's claims of underhand and unethical proceedings during the early stages of the bidding process of the 2018 soccer World Cup.

FIFA president had earlier assured swift actions of the claims made and had asked for evidence. FA on its part, has reportedly agreed to send supporting evidence after its former chief Lord Triesman had said officials including Concacaf president Jack Warner had asked for favours from the English contingent.

FA is believed to have already written to the apex body in the sport and its chairman, David Bernstein is expected to comment further on the issue on Thursday.
