Scotland Versus Nigeria …..are we really bothered or suprised.!
Daily Mail has it that Tuesday’s friendly in London between Nigeria and Scotland is being investigated by police after claims that attempts have been made to fix the match.
Reportedly officers from the National Crime Agency, Britain’s equivalent of the FBI which deals with serious and organized crime are understood to have asked FIFA to issue an alert over potential attempts to rig the game by a betting syndicate in the Far East.
Neither the Scottish Football Association who have been liaising with the National Crime Agency after the game was ‘red flagged’, or the NCA themselves have released any formal public comments just yet.
The illegal betting syndicate are expected to target the friendly internationals due to take place leading up to the World Cup in Brazil.
