Members call for full release of Garcia's report increaseGetty

Two members of Fifa's executive committee have called for the public release of lawyer Michael Garcia's report into the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, chairman of Fifa's independent ethics committee, released a 42-page summary on Thursday that largely exonerated Russia and Qatar of any wrongdoing in their successful bids.

Michael Garcia, the lawyer who conducted the 18-month investigation into the bidding process, dismissed the judge's conclusions, claiming they "contain numerous materially incomplete and erroneous representations" and plans to appeal its findings.

In the wake of the disagreement, Fifa vice-president and CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb and president of the US Soccer Federation Sunil Gulati have released a joint statement urging the release of the report to "ensure complete transparency".

The statement read: "Given the disagreement between the two Chairmen of the Investigatory and Adjudicatory Chambers of the Ethics Committee and to ensure complete transparency, we believe the full report conducted by the Fifa Ethics Committee into the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups should be made public as soon as possible.

"This can be done with appropriate redaction to protect any confidentiality required by the Fifa Code of Ethics. Providing the entire independent report for inspection is in the best interest of the game and Fifa."

The call echoes those made by Football Association chairman Greg Dyke, after England's 2018 bid was targeted for scathing criticism in the report.

Judge Eckert on Friday said he was "surprised" by Garcia's criticism, claiming: "A lot of my report was word for word from the Garcia report."
