Football officials in Cameroon are investigating claims of World Cup match-fixing allegedly involving seven players from the African nation’s team, which lost all three of its first-round matches.

BBC Sport reports convicted Singaporean football match-fixer Wilson Raj Perumal told the German news magazine Der Spiegel that Croatia would defeat Cameroon 4-0 in the first round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and that a Cameroonian player would be sent off in the first half.

That’s exactly what happened in Manaus on June 18, with Alex Song lashing out at Croatia’s Mario Mandžukić and getting ejected from the match.
