SOCCER

FIFA: Russia has regained its place on the FIFA Council, six months after Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko was blocked from re-election.

UEFA member federations elected Alexei Sorokin, CEO of the 2018 World Cup organizing committee, by acclamation as one of their delegates to FIFA’s strategy-setting committee.

The seat, which runs through 2021, had been vacant since May, when Mutko was forced to step down.

ENGLAND: England women’s team coach Mark Sampson has been fired over “inappropriate and unacceptable behavior” involving players in a previous job.

The English Football Association says it was only made aware last week of the full report into Sampson’s conduct as a club coach at Bristol Academy in the Women’s Super League.

Sampson left Bristol in 2013 to take charge of England.

The FA says it believes there is “clear evidence of inappropriate and unacceptable behavior by a coach.” The details weren’t disclosed.
