FIFA Denies Claims They Are Investigating Match-Fixing Allegations

FIFA have denied claims by one of their former corruption experts that "they are investigating match-fixing allegations" at the 2010 World Cup, according to the PA. FIFA's former Head of Security Chris Eaton told Channel 4 that the organization "were looking into a specific incident in the clash between Nigeria and Greece." However, in a statement to the PA, a FIFA spokeperson said, "We are not conducting any match-fixing investigation for 2010 FIFA World Cup matches." Eaton alleged that his former employers were "still investigating suspicious activity at the game." Eaton: "It's certainly an interesting circumstance and we know a lot about it" (PA, 8/7).
