Football: El Salvador internationals suspended a month over match-fixing
BERN (REUTERS) - El Salvador has provisionally suspended 22 footballers, nearly all of them experienced internationals, for 30 days each in connection with possible match-fixing, the country's football federation Fesfut said.
"With the investigations which have been conducted up to his point, evidence has been collected which suggests that offences connected to so-called match-fixing have been committed," said Fesfut in a statement late on Wednesday.
The players banned included Ramon Sanchez, Osael Romero, Eliseo Quintanilla, Dennis Alas, Alfredo Pacheco and Marvin Gonzalez, who all have over 50 caps.
Other players with regular international experience included Cristian Castillo, Miguel Montes, Rodolfo Zelaya, Victor Turcios and Jose Mardoqueo Henriquez.
