Four more arrests in Norwegian match-fixing probe

Four more footballers were arrested in Norway on Friday as part of a probe into alleged match-fixing involving two local third division games, police said.

Oslo police spokesman Kristian Ski told AFP that three of the arrests were players from Follo, a team from which another player was arrested on Wednesday.

Police are focusing on a match on June 24 which Follo lost 4-3 at Oestsiden, despite leading 3-1 with 20 minutes to go.

The fourth arrest was a player from Asker, who were beaten 7-1 by Frigg Oslo the same day.
