WELLINGTON (AFP) The Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) on Monday pledged to fully cooperate with a FIFA probe into allegations its president offered to sell his vote in the bidding race for the 2018 World Cup. World footballs governing body launched the investigation after a British newspaper alleged it covertly filmed OFC president Reynald Temarii and Nigerian FIFA official Amos Adamu soliciting money in return for their votes. Reynald Temarii welcomes a full and thorough investigation so that all the facts can be heard, the OFC said in statement. Britains Sunday Times alleged Temarii, who is also a FIFA vice-president, wanted three million New Zealand dollars (2.3 million US) to set up a sports academy in Auckland from undercover journalists posing as lobbyists. It said Adamu, Nigerias representative on FIFAs executive committee, demanded 800,000 US dollars. Temarii, a former player for French club FC Nantes, represents Tahiti and has headed the OFC which mainly consists of small Pacific island nations since 2004. New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, whose country is the largest OCF member, said he was concerned at the accusations levelled at head of the Auckland-based body. Whenever you get these kinds of allegations, whether theyre match fixing or selling of votes it reflects badly on the sport and in that regard its quite concerning, Key told reporters. Any deals during the bidding process for a World Cup are strictly forbidden under FIFAs rules, but the Sunday Times said six senior officials, past and present, had told reporters that paying bribes offered the best chance of landing footballs showcase tournament. OFC vice-president Fred de Jong coceded the allegations could damage footballs reputation.
