UEFA President Michel Platini said he is confident Spain would not be excluded from Euro 2008 because of an ongoing row with FIFA over government interference in the running of the country’s football federation.

FIFA has told the Spanish Footbal Federation (RFEF) that it faced possible exclusion from Euro 2008 if it complied with the Spanish government’s request that all sporting federations elect new presidents before the Olympics in August.

Platini said FIFA’s Executive Committee was due to meet on Friday to discuss the situation in Spain.

“It’s FIFA’s problem and they will have to take a decision,” Platini admitted.

But the Frenchman indicated that he did not expect Spain to be prevented from taking part in Euro 2008.

“Spain is a great football country and we want them there,” he added. “I’m convinced Spain will be playing at the Euro and everything will be fine, but FIFA has to decide on Friday.”
