Soccer Power Index: Daily update

Honorary Bayern Munich president Beckenbauer, who was head of the World Cup organising committee, has faced a series of questions over his role in securing the tournament for Germany.

The situation led Wolfgang Niersbach, who was also on the organising committee, to resign his role as president of the German FA (DFB) earlier this month.
