FIFA presidential candidate Gianni Infantino has announced a 90-day action plan if he wins the election later this month.

His speech at Wembley was made in front of backers such as Fabio Capello, Jose Mourinho and one-time FIFA candidate Luis Figo.

Infantino's reforms include reforming the transfer system, appointing a new FIFA secretary general, and distributing more money to FIFA's 209 member associations.

"I feel a lot of emotion and a big responsibility. The image and reputation of FIFA is not very high and it has to rise again. All these legends here are a testimony for the love we have for football," he said.

The FAI has already pledged support to Infantino's campaign for president as confirmed by CEO John Delaney.
