FIFA Wants Zim Players Involved In Match Fixing Banned

Several Zimbabwean players confessed during a probe into alleged  match-fixing that they were paid to lose matches during tours of Asia by the  senior national team in 2008 and 2009.

Speaking during an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC Valcke said “if someone has confessed then this person should not be playing anymore.”

All the players are, however, still playing for their respective clubs in  South Africa and in Zimbabwe.The internationals had admitted that they were paid to lose matches against Thailand, Malaysia and Syria.

The only notable casualty of the scam thus far is former Zimbabwe Football Association chief executive Henriatta Rushwaya, who was sacked when the
scandal came to light in December 2009.Valcke said the players who have admitted to match-fixing should not be allowed to continue with their careers
