most blatant case of match-fixing ever!
On the last day of the season, Brazilian club Viana were going for the Maranhão State League championship. With rivals Moto Club also banging in the goals in a 5-1 win, there is some suggestion Viana might have got a helping hand with their late goal glut.
Nine goals in nine minutes!
Needing to win 11-0 to clinch promotion from the Second Division, Viana found themselves leading Chapadinha by just 2-0 with 81 minutes played. A bit of fatigue might have been setting in, of course, but surely not enough to see them ship nine goals in the final nine minutes!
Blimey, even Hull defend better than this...
