FIFA boss praises 'good looking' Aussie

Sepp Blatter has called Australia's candidate for a new woman's place on the FIFA executive committee "good and good looking" in an address to the Asian Football Confederation.

Blatter briefly addressed the AFC Congress meeting on Wednesday, praising Moya Dodd - an AFC vice-president, former Australian international and one of four women standing for the seat on the top executive committee.

Dodd said she was not offended by Blatter's view of her.

"I was more focused on his earlier comments that I was a good candidate, a very good candidate," Dodd said. "Knowing him as I do, I certainly took no offence."

In his first public speech in Mauritius ahead of the world body's annual FIFA Congress, Blatter also confirmed he would ask the congress on Friday to suspend a decision on the introduction of age and term limits for high-ranking officials until at least next year, saying he'll propose that the 209 member countries "postpone this problem".

Blatter also reaffirmed FIFA's intention to introduce stronger punishments for racism.
