By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Australian police may investigate a payment of $500,000 by Football Federation Australia to Jack Warner after the former soccer powerbroker was arrested in a sweeping corruption probe launched by U.S. authorities this week. Australia's national soccer governing body claimed the payment was made as part of "mandatory" FIFA bidding criteria during the country's failed bid for the 2022 World Cup but was misappropriated by Warner. Bonita Mersiades, a former senior member of Australia's bid team, and local lawmaker Nick Xenophon had written to the Australian Federal Police (AFP) asking them to investigate the payment, the AFP said.
