ZURICH, Switzerland -- FIFA has extended bans for nine players found guilty of match-fixing in Lebanon to apply worldwide.

A Lebanese player has been banned from all soccer-related activities for life, and eight Estonian players each received one-year suspensions.

FIFA says the Estonian players received money from a bookmaker in connection with matches in the country's top division and the Estonian Cup.

The Lebanese player's lifetime ban is the result of betting and corruption which FIFA says was committed by some Lebanese officials and players during national team matches and other AFC Cup games.

The same Lebanese investigation has seen a range of bans imposed on 23 players and one official.
