When the U.S. men's national team takes on Guatemala in a World Cup qualifier on June 12, the hosts are poised to be without three potential starters.
Gustavo Cabrera, Yony Flores and former Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Guillermo "Pando" Ramirez have reportedly been pulled from Guatemala's national team for being part of a match-fixing investigation that stems from a CONCACAF Champions League match between Santos Laguna and Municipal in October, 2010. The match, in which all three played 90 minutes for Municipal, ended 6-1 in Santos Laguna's favor.
The investigation into match-fixing emerges at the same time as one on a greater scale in Italy in which high-profile Italian internationals have been arrested and investigated during the on-going probe.
