Lord Triesman accuses four Fifa members over 2018 bid

Former Football Association chairman Lord Triesman has accused four Fifa members of improper behaviour in the bidding process for the 2018 World Cup.

Triesman, who was initially chairman of England's losing bid team, made the claims about Jack Warner, Nicolas Leoz, Ricardo Teixeira and Worawi Makudi.

He told a Department of Culture, Media and Sport committee that one member had asked him to arrange a knighthood, which he had refused.
