Fifa Bans Two Officials Over Bribe Claims

Fifa banned two of its executive committee members from voting to decide the countries that will host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups following an investigation into newspaper allegations of corruption.

Mr Adamu, a Nigerian official, was given a three-year ban from all football-related activity and fined SFr10,000 (£6,260). He was found to be in breach of his fiduciary duties and rules relating to accepting bribes. Mr Temarii, from Tahiti, was banned for one year and fined SFr5,000, having breached his fiduciary duties.

Mr Adamu said he would lodge an appeal, while the Oceania Football Confederation said it would respect any decision from Mr Temarii to challenge the ruling.
