ZURICH — FIFA has imposed global bans on players and referees from Armenia, Estonia, Tunisia and Lebanon implicated in match-fixing cases.

Two Armenian match officials on FIFA’s international list admitted that they tried to fix a Europa League match in July for a betting scam.

FIFA referee Ali Sabbagh of Lebanon is serving jail time in Singapore. He was convicted of agreeing to fix matches in exchange for sexual favors.
