Two European newspapers say they have obtained a document naming three FIFA executive committee members who allegedly received secret payments from world football'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. Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger and Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung identify them as Ricardo Teixeira of Brazil, Nicolas Leoz of Paraguay and Issa Hayatou of Cameroon.  (AP Photo/Themba Hadebe,file)
