Football Notes: Sierra Leone Captain Among 15 Players, Officials Suspended For Match-Fixing

Ex-Sierra Leone captain Ibrahim Kargbo "is among 15 players and officials who have been suspended indefinitely over allegations of match-fixing." The three other players implicated "are Ibrahim Koroma, Samuel Barlay and Christian Caulker." The allegations "relate to a World Cup qualifier against South Africa in 2008 which ended goalless" (BBC, 7/16). ... The vanishing spray "used by referees at the World Cup could appear in the S-League and Malaysian Super League." Officials from the FA of Singapore and FA of Malaysia "have lauded the spray's use" and are considering introducing it in their domestic competitions (STRAITS TIMES, 7/17). ... Pakistan's football team is "set to tour India for a two-match series" as the two nations resume their rivalry after a nine-year hiatus. The last time the two sides met "was in 2005." The Pakistan team will visit India from Aug. 16-21 and play matches on Aug. 17 and 20 in Bangalore (AFP, 7/17).
