Outing A Fixed World Cup Qualifier
The big match-fixing trial in Bochum is happening, and so the games themselves are rising to the surface. One such game arose today – the above World Cup qualifier between Finland and Liechtenstein back in September of 2009. The fixer, Ante Sapina, said that he requested both goals come in the second half, which they did – one off a penalty for absolutely no apparent reason (blind elbow?), and another off a deflection which Jesus Christ himself would’ve had to have fixed.
The Bosnian referee was banned for life once his ties arose, obviously, but the implication of the article makes it seem as though a 1-1 draw was ordered with the referee (notice he blows the final whistle mere seconds after Finland clangs the post, heart rate somewhere around 3,712bpm). How, then, did they factor for the players not scoring goals of their own volition?
Oh, right – Liechtenstein and Finland. These gangsters are cunning bastards.
