El Salvador Refuses Bribe To Fix Match

El Salvador's national football team refused to take bribe to a fix Tuesday's World Cup 2018 qualifying game against Canada, officials and players revealed.

Team members played an audio recording of the person allegedly offering various incentives at a news conference.

The offer was allegedly made by an El Salvadorian who knew some of the players, but who wanted to help the Honduras national team.

Canada must beat El Salvador in Vancouver and hope Mexico defeat Honduras in the final round of Group A games to stand a chance of progressing.

El Salvador cannot qualify for the final round of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Canada, El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico are members of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf).

Three Concacaf nations will qualify for the 2018 World Cup automatically, with a fourth entering a play-off against a team from the Asian Football Confederation.
