ZURICH (AP) — FIFA President Gianni Infantino still looks set to be re-elected unopposed, with a pledge of 25 votes from Caribbean soccer federations.
The Caribbean Football Union says its executive committee agreed unanimous support for Infantino for the June 5 vote in Paris.
The CFU says all its members “already provided individual letters of support.”
Infantino has promises from a majority of the 211 FIFA member federations.

Infantino is seeking a first full four-year mandate. The Swiss lawyer was elected in February 2016 to complete the fifth term of Sepp Blatter, who was banned by FIFA’s ethics committee.
