FIFA Makes Australian Match-Fixing Ban On Four Players Global

FIFA has imposed global bans on four players and a coach from Australia's Southern Stars Victorian Premier League side "in an escalation of the most serious match-fixing scandal to hit the country," according to Andrew Warshaw of INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL. The five individuals -- all four players are English -- "are barred from taking part in any football-related activity until further notice following a similar Australian ban handed down last week while a court case is ongoing" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 10/31).
