A Champions League tie played in England is one of 680 matches across the world investigators say was fixed.

European police did not reveal the identity of the match they believe was corrupt in England.
But Europol did say that they had uncovered an organised crime syndicate based in Asia that was co-ordinating the operation.

Some 425 match officials, club officials, players and criminals are suspected of being involved.

At a news conference in The Hague, Netherlands, Europol claimed:

- The fixed Champions League tie in England took place in the "last three or four years";

- The identity of that match cannot be revealed due to "ongoing judicial proceedings";

- Other "corrupt" matches included World Cup and European Championship qualifiers and "several top football matches in European leagues";

In Germany-based matches alone, criminals wagered 13.8m (16m euros) on rigged matches and made 6.9m in profits. In total 380 suspicious matches were in Europe and a further 300 in Africa, Asia and south and central America. Officials fear this is as the "tip of the iceberg".

Rob Wainwright, director of Europol - the European Union's law enforcement agency, said:"This is the work of a suspected organised crime syndicate based in Asia and operated with criminal networks around Europe.

"It is clear to us this is the biggest-ever investigation into suspected match-fixing in Europe. It has yielded major results which we think have uncovered a big problem for the integrity of football in Europe.

"We have uncovered an extensive criminal network." Europol, which has been investigating for 18 months, said suspected matches included World Cup and European Championship qualifiers, two Champions League ties and "several top football matches in European leagues".

In addition to the 13.8m wagered on Germany-based matches, payments of 1.73m are thought to have been paid to those involved.

Financial details were not given from the other countries said to be involved, except that the biggest payment to an individual was in Austria for a total of 121,000. Europol believes a crime syndicate based in Asia was liaising with criminal networks throughout Europe, adding that match-fixing has taken place in 15 countries and 50 people have so far been arrested.

In total, 30 countries and close to 700 matches worldwide were examined.

Many of the allegations involved matches in lower divisions around Europe.

German police described a global network involving couriers ferrying bribes of up to 86,000 per match around the world, paying off players and referees. Most cases have been discovered in Germany where 14 people have been jailed for a total of 39 years. Criminal convictions have also been secured in Finland, Hungary, Slovenia and Austria.

Asked specifically about the allegations surrounding the Champions League tie held in England, Wainwright declined to identify the match because of "ongoing judicial proceedings".
However he did say it happened in the last three to four years, adding: "The focus has been on other countries, not the United Kingdom. However we were surprised by the scale generally of the criminal enterprise and just how widespread it was.

"It would be naive and complacent of those in the UK to think such a criminal conspiracy does not involve the English game and all the football in Europe."

A Uefa spokesman said they would co-operate with the investigation. He said: "We will be liaising with Europol in relation to any reports of match fixing in European competition."

^ Numbers are kinda weird.

2 million paid in bribes.. 1,4 in one game.. 150k-100k in others.... which means in thet res 148 games= 500k which means 1 game=3k on average.. in such a big scheme only 8 million earned?

I hope Jozy starts, he seems to be in great form but would not be surprised if he started gomez who has been playing good for his own club and the USMNT. Fabian Johnson also played a full 90 minute game a day ago so that's good. We also finally called up Tim Chandler to a non friendly game so we can finally get him cap tied

I think it'll be a tough game. Honduras is no joke and they're coming off an 8-1 thrashing of Canada. They're probably the third best team in the region and have an incredibly athletic squad. The game is taking place in the most violent city in the world (San Pedro Sulia) and they declared a national holiday so they'll have a packed crowd and the game is at 4PM so that the conditions will be extremely hot and humid and we have guys that have had only two days with the team. All these things considered, I'll be satisfied with a draw and ecstatic with a win.

I hope Jozy starts as well but Gomez has been consistently better with the national team so if we play a lone striker, it'll probably be Herc. The lack of width and wingers concerns me but this is the lineup I think we'll see:

Howard
Chandler - Cameron - Bocanegra - Johnson
Edu
Jones-------Bradley
Dempsey
Gomez--------Altidore

I kind of want to see Besler or Gonzalez get the start instead of Boca but I doubt JK will do it for a tough road game.

I just hope JK doesn't expect Honduras to bunker at home. I predict them to be more on the defensive side but not at the level where you would declare they're bunkering. If anything they will be deadly in the counter attack and if they do score it will be from that (Or some shit pass in midfield that leads to a goal). Also when will Bradly get to be the damn Captain, I think it's time for Boca to pass the torch Also speaking of Honduras hostile terf : http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=bc1UbF3pcDQ

I would doubt a Chelsea or Barca PLAYER is involved in max fixing because thsoe players get large salaries they'd basically forfeit by doign that. In the major leagues the matches were probably fixed via refs and in smaller leagues, players involved.

It's amazing this is going on. ****ing ridiculous.
