A man reads French football magazine 'France Football' with the 'Qatargate' in front page on January 29, 2013 in Paris. The magazine pretends in his last issue that in December 2010 Qatar bought the votes of FIFA executives and won the bid for the 2022 World Cup against such strong opponents as the US, South Korea, Japan and Australia. In 2010, Qatar spent $1.25 million on CAF’s congress to win the four votes of FIFA’s African executives. In addition, the then President Nicolas Sarkozy asked UEFA president Michel Platini to support Qatar’s bid for “geopolitical reasons.” France Football alleged that President Sarkozy and Michel Platini then met with Qatar's Crown Prince Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani to discuss Qatar’s future investments into French football. France Football said it is going to submit the evidence to FIFA. AFP PHOTO LIONEL BONAVENTURE (Photo credit should read LIONEL BONAVENTURE/AFP/Getty Images)
