UEFA, the sport´s European governing body, have asked police to examine 15 matches played this season after an early-warning system detected suspicious betting patterns. UEFA would not name the countries or clubs involved for fear of jeopardising the Europol investigation, but said none of the Euro 2008 qualifying matches are under suspicion.
"There are no investigations under way into any of the qualifying matches for Euro 2008," the body said in a statement. "As a responsible governing body, UEFA is continuously monitoring football betting patterns and will take disciplinary action in any cases where that may be justified."
