    Led by former star Romario, Brazilian Senate opens formal inquiry into country's football

    Romario: “There's no other alternative. Either these guys all go to prison or they will continue sucking the blood out of Brazilian football until its death”

    Brazilian police began investigating allegations of corruption in its soccer industry on Thursday, prompted by the arrests of top officials at world soccer body FIFA in a U.S. bribery probe. The country's Senate, led by former national soccer star Romario, who is now a prominent legislator, moved to open a formal inquiry into alleged bribes paid to obtain contracts with the Brazilian Soccer Federation (CBF).
