Japan soccer exec denies payment over 2002 World Cup vote
A senior official of the Japan Football Association has denied allegations that it paid $1.5 million to the sport’s South American confederation for supporting its co-hosting of the 2002 World Cup adidas supercolor baratas , a newspaper reported Sunday.

“It’s impossible,” JFA hononary president Junji Ogura told the Asahi Shimbun of the report.

On Friday, Spanish sports daily Diario AS said the JFA paid the money to the South American football confederation, Conmebol, after it backed Japan’s co-hosting with South Korea of the 2002 event.

The report came amid deepening scandals at the top of world football’s governing body FIFA. Fourteen of its officials or partners have been charged as part of a corruption investigation led by U.S. authorities.

A source who worked at Conmebol for 15 years told the Spanish paper that the then-JFA honorary president Ken Naganuma sent the money in 2000. He has since died.

Japan and South Korea were chosen in 1996 as joint hosts of the 2002 event after fierce competition between the two nations.

Ogura said any such payment in 2000 would have been impossible since Japan had won the event four years earlier.

“Besides, we don’t have such a sum of money adidas superstar 2 baratas ,” he added.

The Yomiuri Shimbun quoted JFA president Kuniya Daini as saying the organisation would check whether the money was really sent.

Kozo Tashima, a JFA vice president and member of the FIFA executive committee, told local media he had never heard about the alleged payment.

“I know nothing. I don’t know what to say,” he said.

The JFA could not be reached for comment Sunday.

PARIS, May 17 (Xinhua) -- Monaco secured their first Ligue 1 title since 2000 with a 2-0 home win against Saint-Etienne in a rescheduled match on Wednesday.

Monaco have virtually won the title ahead of the rescheduled 31st round action, as they led defending champions Paris Saint-Germain adidas superstar slip on baratas , who had one game remaining, by three points with a far superior goal difference, and a draw with eighth-ranked Saint-Etienne would earn them a tight grip on the trophy.

Monaco took the lead through the 18-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe, who collected Radamel Falcao's pass, broke the defense, and rounded goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier to score his 15th league goal of the season.

Substitute forward Valere Germain sealed the victory for Monaco with a shot at target on a counter-attack into stoppage time adidas superstar foundation baratas , also handing Monaco their eighth crown in French top-flight league.

The league was still haunted by an uncertainty of relegation, as Dijon, Caen, Lorient, Bastia and Nancy were involved in a battle to avoid being the last two teams after Saturday's finale.
