DENMARK are planning talks with fellow Uefa nations over potentially QUITTING Fifa.

They were one of seven nations, including England and Wales, planning to wear One Love armbands before backing down over the threat of yellow cards.

Danish FA chairman Jesper Moller said Denmark were considering leaving Fifa and are set for talks with Uefa’s 55 member nations, which includes England.

Moller said: “There are presidential elections in FIFA. There are 211 countries in FIFA and I understand that the current president has statements of support from 207 countries.

“Denmark is not among those countries. And we’re not going to be either.”

CEO Jakob Jensen added: “It is not a decision that has been made now. We have been clear about this for a long time. We have been discussing it in the Nordic region since August.

“I’ve thought it again. I imagine that there may be challenges if Denmark leaves on its own. But let us see if we cannot have a dialogue on things.

“I have to think about the question of how to restore confidence in FIFA. We must evaluate what has happened, and then we must create a strategy – also with our Nordic colleagues.”
