ZURICH — FIFA (Federation Internationale de Footbal Association) managerial committee member Amos Adamu say he will face an ethics panel inquiry Wednesday after being concerned in a bribery scandal involving the vote for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

The Nigerian told The Associated Press at FIFA head office on Monday that his inquiry is set for the same day another FIFA official, Reynald Temarii, faces a similar case.

Adamu declined comment later after meeting with FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

Blatter has promised an "in-depth investigation" into allegations in Britain's Sunday Times newspaper that Adamu and Temarii obtainable to sell their votes.

Temarii told The AP on Sunday that he made a fault talking to undercover journalists, but defended his truth.
