Match-fixing Scandal Shocks Soccer World

Hosted by

When Real Salt Lake defeated the LA Galaxy this week in Major League Soccer, it was bigger news in Europe than in the US. But now soccer fans around the world are preoccupied with a scandal far from China, Hong Kong and Singapore, where soccer games have been contaminated by match-fixing. Seventeen people have been arrested and some 200 are said to be under investigation in several European countries. Jamie Trecker is senior soccer writer for Fox Sports and author of Love & Blood, about the 2006 World Cup.
