[highlight]Football Federation of Australia is demanding answers after a $462,000 donation it made to a Caribbean football organisation was allegedly stolen by disgraced former FIFA kingpin Jack Warner.[/highlight]

The incident was detailed in a damning integrity report by the Caribbean, North and Central American International Football Body, that accuses Warner of enriching himself through fraud.

The report compiled by several former judges into the financial management of CONCACAF relates to when Warner, a former vice-president of FIFA who decided to quit the Federation in 2011 after being accused of paying bribes, headed the organisation.

It said FFA paid a cheque into a Caribbean bank account maintained by CONCACAF in 2010 to help the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation improve a centre of excellence.
