bent pointless international friendlies - who'd have thought?

Two games played in an international friendly double-header at a Turkish resort, none of the teams involved are ranked in the FIFA Top 50, and no local representation either.

Gee, doesn't sound fishy at all. Oh, and all SEVEN goals across the two matches were from penalties....

FIFA to probe friendly matches

FIFA have opened an investigation into last Wednesday's international friendly double-header in Antalya after heavy betting was discovered following the award of seven penalties in the two games.

Bulgaria and Estonia played out a 2-2 draw hours after Latvia had beaten Bolivia 2-1 at the Turkish resort, with all seven goals coming from the spot.

  1. Hi Scott

    The four blogs that I visit the most in no particular order are betangel, green all over, slippery toad and yours.

    I think the reason for that is the professional way they are all run and their longevity. So that I don't forget to check your blog out I have added myself to your reader list.

    I have recently started my own blog and I have added yours to my blog list and useful resource list.
    I wonder if you would consider adding my blog to your other betting blogs list? The address is:

  2. cheers for the kind words Mark, I cleared out some of the deadwood on the blogroll yesterday - like you hint at, so many people fade away fairly quickly - and time to add some new ones. I look forward to reading it regularly.
