AFC bans 22 Laos and Cambodian players for 'manipulation of matches'

From 1977-1980, Banerjee did not concede a single goal against East Bengal.
The AFC has handed out life bans to 22 Laos and Cambodia players.

Southeast Asian football has been rocked by life bans for 22 players from Laos and Cambodia for match-fixing.

The Asian Football Confederation announced the suspensions on Wednesday after investigating matches of the Laos national team, and club side Lao Toyota FC.

V. Sundramoorthy won't replicate Bernd Stange's tactics for Singapore

Singapore's Hariss Harun and Hassan Sunny are heading abroad to the Spanish third division and Japan respectively.

Sundram, 51, is only three months away from the end of his one-year contract as national team boss. And his recent record hasn't good, with Singapore failing to win a game at last November's AFF Suzuki Cup as they exited in the group stage.

Thailand moved within four spots of being the highest-ranked nation in Southeast Asia, as almost all countries including Malaysia and Singapore remain unmoved in the latest FIFA rankings.

Malaysia and Singapore, who also crashed out in the group stages, remained in 161st and 165th, respectively.

Vietnam fell two spots...
