Greg Dyke, the chairman at FA, confirmed that they are looking to revive their World cup bids, now that FIFA has a new leader.

FA will revive World Cup bid (possibly 2030) as Gianni Infantino named new Fifa president
Previously, they were beaten emphatically by Russia for hosting the 2018 World cup. Sepp Blatter, the previous FIFA chief was the reason FA had ruled out bringing future tournaments to England.

When he was voted for the fifth time last May, FA thought that they'll have to wait a bit longer, but he stepped aside days later after accusations against him which led to a six-year ban from football related activity. He's still strenuously protesting his innocence.

 "It's been a corrupted organisation for a very long period of time," Dyke told Sky News. "There's a big job to be done. But at least we've got a reform programme and at least we've got a president in whom we can trust. (Infantino is) very competent, much organized, very together. Not a showman, but good fun. He has got a lot of qualities and it will be very good for FIFA."

Blatter is backing the choice made by FIFA members, and told German broadcaster ZDF: "I'm happy that Gianni Infantino is president, a man from (the Swiss region of) Oberwallis like me. I drank some mulled wine with him at Christmas time, gave him tips."

Infantino's victory came after a second round of voting at the world governing body's extraordinary congress in Zurich, as the 45-year-old Swiss lawyer edged past Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim al Khalifa of Bahrain securing 115 votes against his 88. He becomes the second successive Swiss president at a crucial time in FIFA's history.
