Compared to lethal teargas, torturing princes and torturing princesses in Bahrain, corrupt football matches seem to be relatively minor problem.

This video is called Bahrain 10-0 Indonesia – Highlights of match probed by FIFA.

Still, today from Radio New Zealand:

Bahrain games may be part of match-fixing scandal

Updated at 9:21 am today

The All Whites‘ victory over Bahrain in the 2009 World Cup qualif[i]ers could be among games being investigated by European police in a global match-fixing sting.

It emerged on Tuesday that about 680 suspicious but as yet unspecified matches, including World Cup qualifiers, are being probed.

New Zealand Football is in the dark as to whether the Bahrain fixture is among those under suspicion.

Bahrain have since been investigated over a dubious result in a 2012 Asian zone World Cup qualifier against Indonesia, when Bahrain won the match 10-0 after needing to overcome a nine-goal deficit to have any chance of progressing to the next stage.

Bahrain regime forces arrested yesterday three football players during a series of early morning home raids in Jidhafs area. Two were released in the evening, while one, Mohammed Jaffar, remains behind bars: here.

Football match-fixing: countries where recent scandals have been uncovered. Cases of corruption similar to those exposed in Britain this week have emerged in at least 15 other nations: here.
