ZURICH (AP) - FIFA executive committee member Amos Adamu says he will face an ethics panel hearing Wednesday after being implicated in a bribery scandal involving the vote for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

The Nigerian told The Associated Press at FIFA headquarters on Monday that his hearing is set for the same day another FIFA official, Reynald Temarii, faces a similar case.

Adamu declined comment later after meeting with FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

Blatter has promised an “in-depth investigation” into allegations in Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper that Adamu and Temarii offered to sell their votes.

Temarii told The AP on Sunday that he made a mistake talking to undercover reporters, but defended his integrity.
