FIFA published a Swiss court dossier which details that Teixeira received at least $13 million between 1992-97 from marketing agency ISL, which collapsed into bankruptcy in 2001.

The document shows Havelange received a payment of around $1 million.

Payments ''attributed'' to accounts connected to the two Brazilians totaled almost $22 million from 1992-2000.

FIFA released the document hours after Switzerland's Supreme Court announced its ruling that media organizations should receive details of the ISL case.
