Franz Beckenbauer is under pressure to explain his part in Germany's 2006 World Cup scandal after the emergence of a document directly linked to the legendary player and coach.German football has lurched into a crisis over magazine Der Spiegel's report last month alleging that the votes of four members of FIFA's executive committee were bought in 2000, when Germany narrowly won the vote to host the 2006 finals.Now the DFB has confirmed reports of a draft agreement, signed in part by Beckenbauer, which German daily Bild claims was aimed at buying "votes for the German bid".Reinhard Rauball, who alongside Koch is co-interim president of the DFB, said Beckenbauer needs to explain himself.Beckenbauer is already being investigated by FIFA's ethics committee, which is looking into the controversial awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cup finals to Russia and Qatar respectively.
