Uefa has confirmed that none of the 15 matches under suspicion of match-fixing were Euro 2008 qualifiers.

European football’s governing body has handed a 96-page report to Interpol alleging that 15 games in a variety of competitions have been fixed.

“They all involve preliminary rounds of club competitions,” Uefa spokesman William Gaillard told BBC Radio 5 Live.

Some reports in the UK have suggested that the investigation could lead to England or Scotland – who both failed to qualify – getting places at next summer’s finals.

“In most cases it is just suspicion,” said Gaillard.

“There is only one match that involves an investigation and that was a match in the second round of the Intertoto Cup. It was not a decisive match.”

The story was first reported in German magazine Der Spiegel.

The magazine claims that the vast majority of clubs involved come from countries in eastern and south-eastern Europe.
