Qatar is in danger of being stripped of the 2022 World Cup over the vote-buying scandal with reports it could now be staged in England or the United States, Nine Wide World of Sports has reported.

The decision was made to award the 2018 Cup to Russia, and the 2022 Cup to Qatar, before details emerged that the process was corrupt, the report stated.

German outlet Bild announced they intended to print leaks, including a secret payment of $2.6 million to the 10-year-old daughter of Brazilian FIFA powerbroker Ricardo Teixera. There were other instances including three senior figures being flown to Rio in a Qatari-owned jet, Nine Wide World of Sports reported.
