CAPE TOWN, South Africa --

The chief organizer of South Africa's 2010 World Cup is one of two senior soccer officials named in a criminal complaint alleging corruption in the FIFA vote to decide the host of the tournament.

South Africa's main opposition party, The Democratic Alliance, said it filed papers with police on Monday asking them to investigate the involvement of former World Cup head Danny Jordaan and former South African Football Association President Molefi Oliphant in alleged bribery to get the World Cup.

The Democratic Alliance said the men should be investigated over a payment of $10 million by South Africa to Jack Warner, a former FIFA executive indicted by U.S. authorities on charges of bribery and racketeering.

U.S. authorities investigating corruption at FIFA say former executive committee member Chuck Blazer admitted the money was a bribe to secure votes for South Africa.
