FIFA bans Chinese referee for life in match fixing probe
58 people punished in total for their role
FIFA has given worldwide bans to 58 football players and officials found guilty in Chinese match-fixing cases.
FIFA says it expelled 33 people from world football for life and 25 others will serve five-year bans for involvement in "domestic match-fixing and bribery."
All those banned were previously sanctioned by the Chinese Football Association.
Life bans were imposed on referee Lu Jun, who officiated two 2002 World Cup group-stage matches, and four former Chinese internationals: Shen Si, Qi Hong, Jiang Jin and Li Ming.
FIFA says the sanctions follow investigations and trials conducted by law enforcement and football authorities from 2010-12.
FIFA says the fixed matches were played "in the 1990s and early 2000s."
