Blatter Praises Female Candidate As 'Good Looking'

PORT LOUIS, Mauritius (AP) - Sepp Blatter has called Australia's female candidate for the FIFA executive committee "good and good looking" in an address to the Asian Football Confederation.

Blatter briefly addressed the AFC Congress meeting Wednesday, praising Moya Dodd, an AFC vice president and former Australia international player. She's one of four women vying for the seat on the top executive committee.

It was Blatter's first public speech in Mauritius ahead of the world body's annual FIFA Congress.

Blatter also confirmed that he would ask the congress on Friday to suspend a decision on the introduction of age and term limits for high-ranking officials until at least next year.

Blatter reaffirmed FIFA's intention to introduce stronger punishments for racism.
