Zurich: FIFA has imposed worldwide bans on three more El Salvador national team players in a match-fixing case, taking the total to 19.






FIFA says the players, who it did not identify, were originally banned for five years, one year and six months, respectively, by the El Salvador football association this month.

FIFA announced 16 global sanctions, including 14 lifetime bans, last week.

The case involves international matches, including El Salvador's 5-0 loss to Mexico at the 2011 Gold Cup and a 2-1 loss in a friendly against the United States in 2010. Under-20 national team matches were also involved.

El Salvador authorities shut down the senior national team during their investigation.
