SAFA says FIFA inquiring into fix claims

One of the suspicious games is believed to be the official opening of Soccer City, South Africa’s landmark new stadium and the venue for the World Cup final.

The South African Football Association says the agreement for FIFA to probe the allegations urgently came Tuesday following “heightened media interest in the past 48 hours.”

SAFA says FIFA head of security Chris Eaton — who is leading the world body’s fight against match-fixing — would also visit South Africa in early March.
