The Football Association chairman Keith Wiseman yesterdy failed to be elected to Uefa's six-man executive committee at its 24th Ordinary Congress in Dublin. Wiseman - one of eight new candidates standing against the six executive committee members seeking re-election for another four-year term - polled just 16 votes from the 51-members' associations. The Uefa president Lennart Johansson was re-elected unopposed to another four-year term. Johansson, however, may only serve until 8 June, when he stands as a candidate to succeed Joao Havelange as president of Fifa.
