Football news 2020: FIFA World Cup, bribery, Jack Warner, Qatar 2022, Russia 2018

Bribes were taken for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup, according to the report.

FIFA has been hit by a fresh World Cup bribery scandal.

Court documents allege Trinidad and Tobago’s Jack Warner was paid $5million (US) to back Russia — who beat England to host the 2018 World Cup.

United States Department of Justice papers published last night state Warner was among “several committee members offered bribes in connection with their votes” for Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022.

Warner was apparently sent the cash “in or about and between November 2010 and April 2011” from ten different offshore shell companies via “more than two dozen separate wire transfers” into an account he controlled at a Trinidad and Tobago bank.
