Football Notes: Brasileiro club Náutico Threatens To Boycott Over Fixture List

Brasileiro club Náutico has "threatened to boycott Brazilian championship matches after being scheduled to play two games in three days in a re-arranged fixture list." Internacional was also angry after it were left facing four games in eight days as the Brazilian Football Confederation "re-scheduled fixtures which had been postponed so that some clubs, including Sao Paulo and Santos, could play friendly matches in Europe" (REUTERS, 8/22). ... El Salvador's football federation FESFUT has provisionally suspended 22 footballers, nearly all of them experienced internationals, for 30 days "each in connection with possible match-fixing" (REUTERS, 8/22).
