Former FIFA official: Clean up African soccer

DOHA, Qatar (AP) - A former FIFA official says that Africa needs to do much more to combat match fixing, including setting up a regional body to investigate credible allegations if it wants to restore the faith of soccer fans.

Chris Eaton, a former security chief for soccer's governing body, tells The Associated Press that a new body to fight fixing should be made up of police across Africa, sporting bodies and gambling organizations. He said it would need appropriate funding both from inside and outside Africa and should go beyond ``writing reports'' to produce credible investigations.

Eaton praises police in Africa but says governments on the continent don't seem serious about combating the problem.
