JOHANNESBURG (AP) -- FIFA says it has found no evidence so far implicating South Africans in its investigation of match-fixing allegations.

Soccer's governing body has been interviewing past and present South African Football Association officials. FIFA security head Chris Eaton says he still needs to speak to referees and review documents.

An international match-fixing scandal has included accusations surrounding international games in South Africa leading to the 2010 World Cup in the country. Soccer scandals also have hit Finland, Italy, South Korea, Turkey and Zimbabwe, among others.
