Pompey's path into Europe may not be as clear as it seemed as the FA indicated they might be willing to allow Cardiff to represent England in the Uefa Cup - even though City come under the jurisdiction of the FA of Wales.

The current rules of the competition indicate that should Cardiff win the trophy they would be barred from entry into Europe next season, leaving the place clear for Pompey.

However, after Uefa president Michel Platini said that he would want to see Cardiff take their place in the Uefa Cup in the event of them winning the FA Cup the FA is seemingly preparing to soften its stance.

'Following yesterday's FA Cup semi-final, The FA has been discussing the issue of Cardiff City entering the Uefa Cup next season should they win the FA Cup. We will also continue to discuss this with The FA of Wales and Uefa,' said an FA spokesman.

'At this stage we have not ruled out Cardiff City being entered into Europe via the FA Cup should they win it.

'However, further conversations need to take place but we would expect to have final clarification on this before the end of the month - well before the final takes place on May 17.'

Do you think Cardiff should get the Uefa Cup spot if the win they Cup? Discuss this issue now on the messageboard.
