Match Fixing Suspicions and Nigeria’s Super Eagles at the World Cup

Big news if this is confirmed. Apparently FIFA received warnings that Nigeria was vulnerable to match fixing during the World Cup.

*Suspicions about betting patterns were reported.

*There are allegations that members of Nigeria’s team came forward to claim that their team “was vulnerable to manipulation”.

*A German journalist named Christian Bergmann received a call just before Nigeria’s first World Cup game alleging that “some players from the Nigerian team are actually involved in some form of manipulation”.

I don’t know if this is true or not, but please – no sniggering about Yakubu’s miss against Korea, Kaita’s mad kick against Greece or 419. The plot thickens….
