A-LEAGUE expansion is back on the agenda after FFA last week set a firm date for two teams to enter the competition in 2019-20.

With an FIFA delegation visiting Australia to sort out FFA’s congress standoff, the game’s governing body put out a press release on Friday stating the two successful A-League licences will be decided this year.

But according to Fox Sports football personality Adam Peacock, two new clubs should not be the end point for the A-League, instead calling on FFA to release a complete road map towards a 16-team competition that includes promotion, relegation.

Speaking on the Fox Football Podcast, Peacock also called on the various powerbrokers in Australian football to be transparent with their views of progressing the top competition.

The BBC has apologised after complaints for continuing to broadcasting while Denmark’s Christian Eriksen received emergency treatment during a Euro 2020 game against Finland.

Inter Milan midfielder Eriksen was rushed to hospital after suddenly falling to the turf late in the first half in Copenhagen.

Danish players were in tears as medical staff tried to revive Eriksen with CPR but he was pictured being carried off on a stretcher.

The Danish federation later said on Twitter that Eriksen was awake and undergoing tests in hospital.

The BBC came under scrutiny online for not cutting away to the studio soon enough as Eriksen received treatment, with the decision branded “inexcusable”.

The broadcaster also was criticised for streaming vision of Eriksen’s crying wife and teammates.

In a statement, the BBC said: “We apologise to anyone who was upset by the images broadcast.

“In-stadium coverage is controlled by Uefa as the host broadcaster, and as soon as the match was suspended, we took our coverage off air as quickly as possible.”

Gary Lineker, who was a leading part of BBC’s coverage issued an apology on Twitter:

“I understand some of you would have been upset with some of the images shown (we were too). Obviously these were the host pictures and out of our control. They should have stayed on a wide of the stadium. Apologies”.

He then added that: “In 25 years of doing this job, that was the most difficult, distressing and emotional broadcast I’ve ever been involved with”.
