The U.S. Department of Justice indicted nine current and former FIFA officials and five others on Wednesday with 46 criminal counts ranging from racketeering and wire fraud to money-laundering and unlawful procurement of naturalization. At a press conference in Brooklyn, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said the indictment details corruption in the world soccer governing body (in French, Fédération Internationale des Football Associations) that is "rampant, systemic and deep-rooted, both abroad and here in the United States." 

"It spans at least two generations of soccer officials who, as alleged, have abused their positions of trust to acquire millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks," Lynch added.

The full charges against the 14 men are listed below.
