FIFA is the governing body of international soccer, and the group is voting for a new president Friday in Zurich.

Five finalists are vying to succeed Sepp Blatter, who led FIFA from 1998 until he was banned for financial wrongdoing.

FIFA friends considered to be front-runners are Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim al-Khalifa, president of the Asian Football Confederation, and Gianni Infantino, the General Secretary of UEFA, the administrative body of soccer in Europe.

The FIFA governing body will also vote on reforms designed to root out bribery and corruption.
