Ex-Benfica junior Patafta now Lanexang United GM, targets A-League

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey catches up with former Australian footballer and current Lanexang United general manager Kaz Patafta.

In a crisp white shirt, with black suit and tie, the baby-faced general manager had a familiar look about him as he mingled with other Asian football bosses at last week's AFC draws at the Petaling Jaya Hilton.

At the age of just 28, Kaz Patafta might well have expected to be wearing yellow as part of Australia's ongoing 2018 AFC World Cup qualifying campaign. His former national junior teammates Robbie Kruse, Matt Spiranovic and Nathan Burns, also born in 1988, are key members of the current squad.

Ex-FIFA head of security praises Singapore for match-fixing fight

Singapore has successfully reduced match-fixing over the past few years, according to sports integrity experts.

Singapore has been praised for its efforts in fighting the problem of match-fixing by FIFA's former head of security.

Chris Eaton, who's now an independent sports integrity adviser, says that the Republic deserves praise for stamping out the problem on its shores.

"It took a long time, about two to three years, before Singapore stopped saying: 'It's not happening in Singapore, it's none of our business,'" Eaton told the World Lottery Summit at Marina Bay Sands on Monday, as quoted by the Singapore...
