Two Fifa officials have been filmed trying to sell their votes ahead of the ballot to determine who will host the 2018 World Cup.
According to footage from The Sunday Times, Nigerian, Amos Adamu, who is a FIFA executive committee member, appears to ask for £500,000 in order to sell his vote.
It also shows another member, Oceania’s Football Confederation president Reynald Temarii, who wanted money to start a sports academy, for his vote, which is due to take place in December.
This revelation could have huge implications for England, who seem to be leading the race to host the World Cupin eight years time. However, the bid also faces competition from Russia as well as joint bids from Spain and Portugal and Holland and Belgium.
England will not know the outcome until early December when a 24 man committee decide by secret ballot who will host the 2018 and the 2022 World Cups.
