CONCACAF chief Webb recovers, attends Wembley game

  •  

WEMBLEY, England (AP) - CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb attended England's World Cup qualifier against San Marino on Friday after he became ill on a flight and went to the hospital.

The 48-year-old Webb had to cancel a speech Wednesday at the Leaders in Football Conference at Stamford Bridge. Two days earlier, he felt sick on his flight to London.

CONCACAF said in a statement that Webb had a "thorough evaluation regarding his shortness of breath" and it was concluded he was in "good condition."

The English FA invited Webb to extend his stay in London to attend the match at Wembley Stadium.

Webb succeeded Jack Warner in May as president of soccer's governing body for North and Central America and the Caribbean. Warner quit in 2011 in the middle of a corruption investigation.
