By iSportconnect | July 2, 2014

The match-fixer who was reported to have predicted Cameroon’s defeat to Croatia in the World Cup has denied he predicted the correct score.

German magazine Der Spiegel reported that Wilson Ray Perumal predicted a 4-0 defeat for the Cameroonians and a red card in their game against Croatia – Croatia won by that scoreline and Cameroon had Alex Song sent off for an off-the-ball incident with Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic.

However, adiposity | Permul has denied the claims and said the conversation took place after the game.

“The Facebook chat with the Der Spiegel journalist took place a few days after the match, allergist ” Perumal said.

“At no time did I suggest I had any way of corroborating or substantiating what was meant to be an educated guess based on my extensive match-fixing experience.”

Speaking to the BBC, Die Spiegel responded: “We firmly stand by our assertion, that Mr Perumal wrote in a Facebook chat some hours before the World Cup match Croatia v Cameroon, that the result of the match will be a 4-0-victory for Croatia and that a player of Cameroon will get a red card in the first half.”

Cameroon’s FA FECAFOOT is investigating the claim.
