Fifa Took Bribes for 2010 World Cup

US Attorney General Loretta Lynch says Fifa executives accepted bribes to help secure the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Lynch gave details of the US investigation into football's governing body.
She also alleged that bribery was involved in the 2011 election of Fifa's president and the 2016 Copa Libertadores tournament.
Seven sports officials were arrested in Switzerland on Thursday morning. A FIFA spokesman commented on the arrests.
The Swiss have also opened a separate investigation into the bidding process for the World Cup tournaments in 2018 in Russia and 2022 in Qatar.
