GENEVA : FIFA presidential candidate Gianni Infantino will share his manifesto with UEFA member federations on Friday.

UEFA summoned the leaders of its 54 national bodies to discuss the five-candidate FIFA election on Feb. 26. Officials arriving at Geneva airport said UEFA sent no agenda for the meeting at its headquarters in nearby Nyon.

Infantino's expected support from UEFA members is unlikely to be unanimous. Malta has said it will vote for Prince Ali of Jordan.

English Football Association chairman Greg Dyke tells The Associated Press its vote is not yet decided.

Dyke says "I don't think it's for UEFA to say, 'We support Gianni.' It's for individual associations and we won't make a decision for at least another week."
