ZURICH (AP) - Two European newspapers say they have obtained a document naming three FIFA executive committee members who allegedly received secret payments from world soccer’s former marketing agency.
The allegations come three days before the trio are to take part in FIFA’s vote on the hosts for the 2018 and 2002 World Cups.
The newspapers say they obtained the same document that the BBC plans to feature in a documentary being aired Monday.
FIFA said it had no comment on the reports.
