El Salvador bans 14 soccer players for life

By Evan Hilbert | CBSSports.com

El Salvador has banned 14 players for life for their respective roles in a match-fixing scandal dating back to 2010.

According to the Associated Press, the bans in question occurred in four matches, including games with Mexico and the United States.

The USMNT defeated El Salvador 2-1 in 2010, and Mexico defeated them 5-0 in the 2011 Gold Cup.

El Salvador's football federation suspended 22 players last month when the investigation began before handing down the lifetime bans Thursday.
