ST PETERSBURG, Russia---Fifa and
Sepp Blatter put their corruption crisis
aside and got back to World Cup busi-
ness at the 2018 tournament qualifying
draw hosted by Vladimir Putin at a
Russian state residence yesterday.
The two presidents joined on stage for
speeches to open a draw ceremony that
almost two hours later paired Spain and
Italy, respectively the 2010 and 2006
champions, in a group, and revived the
game s oldest international rivalry, Eng-
land vs. Scotland.
With the focus once more on football,
the embattled Fifa leadership and much-
criticised host nation Russia could display
a confident and united front during a
slickly staged show.
It was Blatter s first major public event
since American and Swiss criminal inves-
tigations of corruption in world football
were unsealed two months ago.
"Thank you President Putin, you make
us happy and comfortable," said Blatter,
making his first trip outside his native
Switzerland since mid-May. He has
avoided Fifa business in countries which
have extradition treaties with the United
Putin and Blatter got a standing ovation
from Russian and football officials and
guests when they walked on together in
a temporary venue built in the splendid
grounds of Konstantin Palace.
"We are here to launch a football
marathon," Putin said through a translator,
almost three years ahead of the finals
tournament kicking off after around 850
The preliminary rounds will decide 31
qualifying slots for teams to join Russia
at the month-long tournament in 11 cities,
from western exclave Kaliningrad to Yeka-
terinburg nearly 2,500 kilometers (1,550
"It is a good chance to visit a multi-
faceted and open Russia that can surprise
and inspire," said Putin, who promised
"a special atmosphere of unity and over-
Still, this week saw black players at
Russian clubs again draw attention to
racial abuse by fans in domestic match-
es.Blatter has long defended Russia against
criticism, and earlier Saturday confirmed
his backing at a brief photo call with
Putin inside the former Romanov palace.
"We say yes to Russia, we are providing
our support," Blatter said of the host
nation, whose winning bid campaign is
being examined by Swiss prosecutors in
a wider case focusing on World Cup bid-
ders and FIFA spending.
"We see what s happening around
football, but I know how you feel about
it," Putin noted. "We thank you for con-
centrating your time and attention on
football above all, despite this."
Fifa gathered football officials from
around the world to the coastal parkland
setting on the south-west fringe of Putin s
home city. The palace previously hosted
world political leaders for meetings of
the G8 and G20 nations.
A total of 141 of Fifa s 209 member
federations were involved in the draw,
including top-ranked Argentina, joint No.
207-ranked Djibouti and Cook Islands,
plus South Sudan on its World Cup debut.
The planned two-hour draw, co-hosted
by supermodel Natalia Vodionova and
television presenter Dmitry Shepelev in
Russian and English, overran by 10 min-
The extra time let Fifa officials relax
a little longer after weeks of being rocked
by fallout from the May 27 arrest of senior
colleagues in Zurich, and unleashing of
investigations into alleged racketeering,
bribery, and corruption implicating foot-
ball and marketing officials.
Blatter was re-elected Fifa president
two days later with support from Putin,
who hinted the United States was med-
dling in football s affairs to help strip
Russia of the 2018 World Cup.
Within a week Blatter had stunningly
announced he would leave the office he
has held since 1998 after a new election
to replace him. It is on February 26.
Blatter could be interviewed for the
Swiss case---which centers on suspected
money laundering linked to the 2018 and
2022 bid contests---and is a stated target
of American investigators. He denies all
Russia bid leaders have also denied
wrongdoing though provided little evi-
dence requested by Fifa s ethics committee
in a previous probe. That case concluded
that wrongdoing by several bid candidates
did not influence the victories of Russia
and 2022 host Qatar.
Yesterday s draw ceremony was con-
ducted by Blatter s right-hand man, sec-
retary general Jerome Valcke, on his sec-
ond trip to Russia since May. Valcke has
also avoided countries where he risks
extradition to the US.
Sport mixed with politics in one part
of the draw as the US will travel during
regional group play to Trinidad and Toba-
go, where indicted former FIFA vice pres-
ident Jack Warner is fighting extradition.
On the field, Germany will start
defending its World Cup title in a six-
team pool where the Czech Republic
seems the biggest barrier to advancing
as group winner. (AP)
