Prince Ali submits formal FIFA presidential candidature

Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein has officially submitted his candidature to become the president of football’s scandal-hit world governing body FIFA.

The Jordanian was beaten by current leader Sepp Blatter in the May elections just days before the latter announced he would step aside amid a deepening corruption scandal.
