Football's world governing body has already rejected an idea of a rematch between France and Ireland.

FIFA has called an emergency meeting of its executive committee ahead of the World Cup draw in South Africa to deal with incidents in the playoffs and match-fixing allegations in Europe.

FIFA said on Monday the meeting would take place on Dec. 2, two days before the World Cup in Cape Town.

FIFA’s statement did not reveal the incidents. However, there were several examples of fan violence before and after Algeria’s victory over Egypt in an African playoff, plus Thierry Henry’s hand ball that led to France advancing at Ireland’s expense.

The committee will also discuss match-fixing and betting scams being investigated in Germany and parts of Central and Eastern Europe.
