THE exclusion of a $462,000 payment to disgraced former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner in an official Australian document has again come into sharp focus.

    AUSSIES Thanasi Kokkinakis and Bernard Tomic have left their mark at the French Open after an epic five-set match which Tomic says he “screwed up”.

    FIFA president Sepp Blatter says he can’t be blamed for the corruption scandal engulfing the organisation, claiming he can’t “monitor” every official.

    FORMER FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has left a jail in Trinidad by ambulance a day after he was charged in the USA corruption case.

    QPR’S Aussie signing Massimo Luongo says the prospect of regular football was the key factor in his decision to snub a move to Premier League side Aston Villa.
