The Bureau of the Organising Committee of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, chaired by Issa Hayatou, met this morning to examine a request made by the French Football Federation.  

The FFF had submitted a request to replace injured goalkeeper Cedric Carrasso.

The request was rejected by the Bureau as they considered the situation not to be a case of force majeure, as outlined in Article 26.4 of the Regulations of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
