The Spanish coach Enrique Llena, former coach of Nicaragua’s national side, today admitted that there were several cases of match fixing in the region, including a Copa Centroamerica game with Guatemala that ended 2-0 to his side.

The game, which took place on 29th January 2009, was won 2-0 with a brace from Samuel Wilson. It was the first time that Nicaraguans beat Guatemala and also the first time that they qualified for the Gold Cup.

Guatemala’s team that day included Guillermo Ramirez, Gustavo Cabrera and Yony Flores, who in 2012 were all banned for life for a match-fixing incident.

CONCACAF have promised to investigate the claims.
