Zurich: FIFA's chief investigator made a surprise swoop on members of the executive who took part in the controversial bids for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup, it has emerged.
The members were unaware that US attorney Michael Garcia would be in Zurich waiting to interview them ahead of the executive committee meeting this week.
It is understood Garcia has now completed all the interviews — only 12 of the 24 members who took part in the vote in December 2010, plus FIFA president Sepp Blatter, are still in office.
Garcia, the head of the investigatory chamber of the FIFA ethics committee, met UEFA president Michel Platini on Wednesday.
