Dodd shooting for a spot on the FIFA Council

Early next week the Asian Football Confederation will vote to elect four of its seven representatives to the FIFA Council, the game?s central decision making body.

That vote has already been thrown into turmoil as one of the contenders, Kuwaiti Sheikh Ahmad Fahad Al-Sabah, withdrew from the race following admissions made by former high-ranking AFC official Richard Lai of bribery and influence peddling in a United States court.

With only the South Korean Chung Mong-gyu, China?s Zhang Jian and the Philippines Mariano Araneta remaining for three of those spots they will automatically be elected with the only vote then taking place being one between four female candidates for the lone remaining slot.

That is widely considered to be a two-horse race between Bangladesh?s little-known candidate Mahfuza Akhter and the Australian Moya Dodd, a respected former international player and lawyer with vast experience at both AFC and FIFA level.
