Nigeria's Adamu to discover fate

Amos Adamu
Adamu denies any wrongdoing

Nigeria's Amos Adamu will discover on Thursday whether he still has a future in football administration.

Fifa's ethics committee will announce whether they are taking action against him and another executive committee member accused of corruption.

Adamu and Reynald Temarii from Tahiti stand accused of asking for money in exchange for World Cup votes.

They were suspended following a sting by Britain's Sunday Times.

Both men deny any wrongdoing.

Should the ethics committee decide on any longer suspensions, that would prohibit the pair from voting on the 2018 and 2022 hosts on 2 December.

Adamu's seat on the Fifa executive committee is up for election in February.

The ethics committee will also rule on four former executive members - Slim Aloulou (Tunisia), Amadu Diakite (Mali), Ahongalu Fusimalohi (Tonga) and Ismael Bhamjee (Botswana) - who have also been suspended following the Sunday Times probe.

The ethics committee will also confirm the outcome of their investigation into allegations that 2018 World Cup bidders Spain/Portugal and 2022 bidders Qatar colluded to trade votes, against bidding regulations.

Spain/Portugal and Qatar are confident they will escape any action for the alleged collusion as it is believed no evidence of any agreement has come to light.
