Fifa needs to make a "quick decision" over whether the 2022 World Cup is held in Qatar or given to another bidder after allegations of bribery and corruption emerged, according to the journalist who broke the story.
Deputy Insight Editor at The Sunday Times, Heidi Blake, said Fifa were trying to pin responsibility for the decision on their investigator Michael Garcia, who was "currently in Oman, interviewing the bid committee".
"We think they're needs to be a quicker decision than that. Michael Garcia has already been investigating these allegations for two years and as far as we understand he hasn't found a smoking gun. The evidence is now here and we need a quick decision."
