Qatar and Russia deny bribing FIFA allegations

Apr 11, 2020 15:59 IST

Qatar and Russia on Tuesday denied allegations of bribes paid to the FIFA executive committee members to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. The US prosecutors had earlier accused them of paying millions as bribe to FIFA officials to vote in favour of awarding the hosting rights for 2018 World cup to Russia and for 2022 to Qatar. US legal action is linked to the 2015 corruption scandal that led to the downfall of then FIFA president Sepp Blatter.
