SALT LAKE CITY -- A man who allegedly offered two Belize players large sums of money to fix a Gold Cup match against the United States has been identified by football officials, and hes believed to have tried to fix matches in other countries. In a statement on Thursday, CONCACAF said it and FIFA are investigating the bribery allegations made by Ian Gaynair and Woodrow West. The players said they rejected the offer, made on Sunday, and immediately reported it. When a CONCACAF representative showed them a photo of a man being monitored for trying to fix matches in other countries, the Belize players confirmed it was the same man who approached them. "So this isnt just about our country or a one-time thing," coach Ian Mork said after practice. "This is something much bigger." Belize lost to the United States 6-1 on Tuesday in its first Gold Cup appearance. It faces Costa Rica here on Saturday, and finishes Group C play next Tuesday with a game against Cuba. CONCACAF said it could not comment further on the ongoing investigation. But Mork said he doesnt believe the players were asked to fix any other games beside Tuesdays match against the U.S. FIFA investigated reports of fixed matches at the 2011 Gold Cup, with Sports Illustrated reporting the questionable games involved Cuba, Grenada and El Salvador. Only two of the 23 players in Belizes squad play professionally: Goalkeeper Shane Orio and defender Elroy Smith play in Honduras. The rest have regular jobs and play in the semi-pro league in Belize in their free time. "Were just trying our best to compete at this level," said Mork, an American. "I could see how they would be targets, I guess, but our minds dont really go there. It was a big shock." Mork and the players said Gaynair and West were approached on Sunday in Portland, Oregon, where they played the Americans, by a man who had also been at their hotel in Guatemala City in June when they faced Guatemala in a friendly. "He was wanting to become friends and come visit Belize," Mork said. "Then all of sudden he also showed up in Portland. It was through this kind of friendship of wanting to support the Belize team. It was obviously part of a plan to target our players." Mork and the players wouldnt give specifics about the offer, referring questions to CONCACAF. Gaynair, a defender who scored Belizes lone goal against the United States, said only that the man asked them to "assure him that we would lose the match." West did confirm the basics of the accounts he first gave to a Belize TV station this week, saying that the man offered him a lump sum of money, but no specific amount, to "sell the game" against the United States. "We turned the offer down. We did what we were supposed to," West said. "FIFA has control of that now." Though CONCACAF pays travel expenses once the team arrived in the United States, Belize had to do fundraisers back home to come up with enough money for the rest of their expenses. "Man, we did barbecues, we did telethons, all kinds of things to reach where we are at right now," Gaynair said. Mork said he was surprised match-fixing touched his squad. "I was really proud of the players," he added. "They did the right thing." Cheap Basketball Jerseys Store . Here are his mid-season NBA awards.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The three-team trade that will send swingman Andre Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors, guard Randy Foye to the Denver Nuggets and a trio of expiring contracts along with a package of draft picks to the Utah Jazz is complete. The trade announced Wednesday started when the Warriors reached a free agent agreement with Iguodala on a four-year, $48 million deal last week. Golden State cleared more than $24 million by sending Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and Brandon Rush to the Jazz along with four draft picks and cash. In the end, the teams wrapped the transactions into one trade that provides additional salary cap flexibility and compensation for each of them. The Jazz received Golden States first-round picks in 2014 and 2017 and second-round picks in 2016 and 2017. Utah also acquired Denvers second-round pick in 2018. Golden State is only taking back Kevin Murphy and his non-guaranteed $788,000 deal from Utah. The Warriors will be able to roll part of the salaries of Jefferson ($11 million), Biedrins ($9 million) and Rush ($4 million) into trade exceptions, which allow teams to exceed the salary cap under the NBAs complicaated system.dddddddddddd All three are in the final year of their deals. After losing Iguodala as a free agent, the Nuggets finally consented to a sign-and-trade deal to give Golden State that flexibility only when they could get something back. By signing Iguodala first and then sending him to the Warriors, Denver will get a trade exception -- likely worth about $9 million -- that it can use any time within the next year. Denver also received Foye in a sign-and-trade with the Jazz, who got back that additional pick while they continue to purge players and build for the future. Foye and the trade exception should somewhat ease Denvers loss created by Iguodalas departure. But its still a loss. Iguodala averaged 13 points, 5.4 assists and 5.3 rebounds while playing forward and guard last season for the Nuggets, who lost in six games to the Warriors in the opening round of the playoffs. He spent his first eight years in the NBA with the Philadelphia 76ers and has averaged 15.1 points on 46 per cent shooting for his career. The Warriors will introduce Iguodala at a news conference Thursday at the teams downtown Oakland headquarters. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
