FIFA's Sepp Blatter claims progress made in Israel-Palestine spat

FIFA president Sepp Blatter explains that football can function as an agent for peace, at the Israel Football Federation meeting in Jerusalem.

FIFA President Sepp Blatter says he is making progress in resolving a spat between Palestinian and Israeli soccer leaders and hopes to avoid a vote to suspend Israel.

Blatter says progress was made after speaking with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday. But he says one obstacle remains because the Palestinians are demanding that Israeli teams based in settlements in the West Bank be banned.

Blatter is scheduled to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah on Wednesday.

Europe are set to lose a starting berth at the 2018 World Cup, FIFA executive committee member Theo Zwanziger has revealed.
