AFC denies match-fixing allegations

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- The Asian Football Confederation says it has no evidence from a match-fixing investigation that a Lebanon defender helped Qatar win a 2014 World Cup qualifier.

The AFC says in a statement it "has no knowledge on any suspicion surrounding Lebanon's ... 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches."

On Monday, the Lebanese soccer association banned national team defender Ramez Dayoub for life among 24 players suspended in a match-fixing and bribery scandal.

The sanctions revived speculation on Dayoub's misplaced pass which led to Qatar's goal in a 1-0 win in Beirut last June.

Lebanon coach Theo Buecker has said "after seeing this from Dayoub, I kicked him out" of the team.

The AFC says it congratulates the Lebanese association on its actions, and has requested "the full investigation report."
