Fourteen players banned for life
September 22nd, 2013 4:04AM



[EL SALVADOR] The Salvadoran soccer federation (FESFUT) banned 14 national team players for life for their role in suspected match-fixing of four matches, including a friendly against the USA in 2010.

Among those banned were veteran goalkeeper Miguel Montes and former MLS players Christian Castillo (D.C. United), Osael Romero (Chivas USA) and Ramon Sanchez (San Jose).

Other players handed life bans: Luis Anaya, Miguel Granadino, Dagoberto Portillo, Dennis Alas, Darwin Bonilla, Ramon Flores, Alfredo Pacheco, Mordecai Henriquez, Marvin Gonzalez and Reynaldo Hernandez.

Romeo Monteagudo was banned for 18 months, while former D.C. United player Eliseo Quintanilla and Victor Turcios received six-month bans.

Four players -- including Gold Cup star Rodolfo Zelaya -- remained under investigation, while Carlos Carillo was cleared, making him the only one of the 22 players suspended for one month while the FESFUT investigation was ongoing to escape punishment.
