FIFA Tuesday released a long-withheld report on alleged corruption in awarding the 2022 World Cup to Qatar after more leaks deepened the controversy surrounding the vote.FIFA's hand was forced when German tabloid newspaper Bild said it had obtained the full report and released extracts Monday, including revelations that a 10-year-old daughter of one FIFA member had received $2 million in her bank account.Garcia had resigned as head of FIFA's investigatory body in December 2014 in protest after FIFA released a 40-page sanitized summary of his report that he disowned, describing it as "incomplete and erroneous".The report also documents that three executive members of FIFA were flown to Rio de Janeiro for a private party ahead of the vote to decide who would host the 2022 World Cup.Hours before FIFA made the decision to go public former FIFA boss Sepp Blatter had denounced the report's leaking to Bild.
