London: The English Football Association has written to FIFA President Sepp Blatter demanding the release of the full World Cup bidding corruption investigation.

FIFA judge Joachim Eckert's summary of the investigation into the 2018 and 2022 bid contests by Michael Garcia was immediately criticized last week by the FIFA prosecutor.

FA chairman Greg Dyke warns that "urgent action is needed if confidence in FIFA is to be rebuilt in England ... this action should start with the full publication of Garcia's report."

The conduct of England's failed 2018 bid team was denounced by Eckert.

Dyke says in his letter to Blatter and the FIFA executive committee: "Complete transparency is required if the actions of all those who bid, including England 2018, are to be judged fairly."
