680 Soccer Matches Suspected of Fixing

680 soccer matches--including qualifying games for the World cup--are suspected of being fixed. Global law enforcement officials announced the results of a 19-month investigation, Monday, which implicates at least 425 people from over 15 countries in a multi-million dollar scheme. "This is a sad day for European football, and more evidence of the corrupting influence of organized crime," said Rob Wainright, director of Europol--one of the entities that helped in the investigation.
