UEFA will not boycott FIFA Congress, Scottish soccer body says

ZURICH (Reuters) - European soccer’s governing body UEFA will attend Friday’s FIFA Congress as planned, the Scottish Football Association said on Thursday.

UEFA had issued a strongly worded statement on Wednesday saying that the Congress and a presidential election vote should be postponed following the arrest of senior FIFA figures on corruption charges.
