Gianni Infantino's FIFA presidential campaign has received a further boost with the backing of seven more European Football Associations.

Italy, Greece, Norway, Belarus, Slovenia, Sweden and Armenia have confirmed they will vote for UEFA's general secretary Infantino in the election, which takes place in Zurich on February 26.

Infantino was joined by high-profile backers such as Jose Mourinho, Figo and Fabio Capello at a special event at Wembley on Monday.

He met FA chairman Greg Dyke in the morning and the FA is expected to announce its support for him after a board meeting later this month.

The South American Football Confederation and the Central American Football Union endorsed Infantino last week.
