USA football association president Sunil Gulati has been elected as the newest member of the FIFA Executive Committee.

Gulati replaces fellow American and former CONCACAF General Secretary Chuck Blazer, winning a close vote 18-17 over Mexican Football Federation (FMF) president Justino Compean.

“US Soccer president Sunil Gulati has been elected to be a member of the FIFA Executive Committee representing the North Zone,” the USSF announced on Twitter on Friday afternoon.

Gulati will be one of three CONCACAF members on the legislative group.

Jeffrey Webb – president of CONCACAF and the Cayman Islands Football Association – represents the Caribbean region, while Guatemala’s Rafael Saguero represents Central America.

Gulati, 53, moved to the US from India as a child and has been president of the USSF since 2006.
