The Italian Football Federation has withdrawn its proposed referee for
the World Cup, Massimo De Santis, who isunder investigation in a probe
into possible soccer fraud.

The federation said in a statement on Saturday it had informed FIFA
and UEFA that it was withdrawing applications for De Santis, and two
assistant referees, Alessandro Griselli and Marco Ivaldi, to
participate at the tournament which starts in Germany next month.

It said the move "must not be considered in any way prejudicial of the
legal judgements which are the exclusive competence of judicial bodies
both ordinary and of sport".

All three officials are among those being investigated in the sports
scandal which has hit four of Italy's top clubs.

I'm hardly the first person to claim refs are bent or biased, usually
however there's no evidence, it's just something we say when frustrated
with a perceived lack of impartiality.
