A Swedish top-flight fixture between Gothenburg and AIK has been postponed after an alleged match-fixing attempt.

The two sides were set to meet in the Allsvenskan at 18:00 BST on Thursday.

But the Swedish Football Federation announced it would postpone the fixture citing a "very serious attack against Swedish football".

"We will never, never accept this," Hakan Sjostrand, secretary general of the federation, told AFP in a statement.

Strange that it would happen at the highest level. I've always been under the impression that the easier people to influence in the UK would be your semi-pro's/amateurs, who aren't on much/any money and would imagine this is the same across Europe.

"The Swedish Football Association claims an AIK player was "offered a considerable sum" on Tuesday if he contributed to losing the match."

Someone must have been inspired by that North Korean goalkeeper in that U-16 international match v Malaysia where he managed to mis-judge heading a long punt up pitch, slowed down his sprint en-route back to his own goal and then fell over… TWICE as he watched the ball trickle over the line. This match-fixing lark… it ain’t easy, y’know! xD
