BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: Greg Dyke defends cut-throat gesture
Dyke defends cut-throat gesture
- From the section 2014 Fifa World Cup
Football Association chairman Greg Dyke defends the cut-throat gesture he made as England's 2014 World Cup group was drawn earlier this month.
Dyke was seen to slide his index finger across his throat as England were placed in Group D alongside Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica during the draw in Brazil on 6 December. The FA chairman says he reacted that way because it is a "difficult" group.
Former England striker Gary Lineker agrees Group D will be "tough" for England, but thinks expectations will be low as the team are going through a "transitional" phase.
