Dyke said the FA had "nothing to hide"

Dyke said the FIFA 15 Coins
had "nothing to hide".

"Within that document, most of the criticism is of individuals who co-operated the most fully," he said.

"If you actually didn't co-operate, you don't get criticised, which seems very weird to me. The FA, I don't think on this, has got anything to hide.

"Everything that was done was cleared with the Fifa executive beforehand and was told to the Garcia document by the English FA."

Lord Triesman, who was chairman of the FA at the time voting for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups took place, said he also desired to see the entire document.

Dyke also called for Garcia's document, which runs to hundreds of pages, to be published in full.

He was criticised in the document for failing to co-operate with the inquiry.

"I'm seldom satisfied by seeing summaries by someone else," Triesman told BBC Sport. "In this day and age, people are entitled to see the original."

British MP Damien Collins described Eckert's document as "a whitewash" before Garcia's statement was issued.

Fellow MP Clive Efford, Labour's Shadow Minister for Sport, added: "Fifa has no choice but to publish Michael Garcia's document in full if it expects someone to think their claims that there has been no cover-up over allegations of corruption in the World Cup bidding process."

Fifa's inquiry looked at the conduct of the nine teams bidding to win the right to stage the 2018 or 2022 World Cups.

It was initiated after a considerable number of corruption allegations were made one time voting had taken place in 2010.

Russia won the right to host the 2018 event, beating England as well as joint bids by the Netherlands and Belgium, and France and Portugal.

England collected votes after expressing high hopes of winning.

To much surprise, Qatar was awarded the 2022 event, edging out Australia, Japan, South Korea and the United States.

Hassan Al Thawadi, general secretary of the Qatar 2022 organising committee, told BBC Sport: "Throughout this whole process we have been transparent when it comes to the process of bidding for the 2022 World Cup.

The document cleared the Gulf state of corruption, although it noted that there were "certain indications of potentially problematic conduct of specific individuals".

"We've always been confident about the integrity of our bid. Today's document was confirmation of that."

The document noted that the Russian bid team made "only a limited amount of documents available for review".

According to the document, the Russian team hired computers that were subsequently destroyed, denying the inquiry access to e mail accounts.

"We were always confident that there could be nothing which would come out from this inquiry," said Alexey Sorokin, the head of Russia's 2018 World Cup organising committee.
