Rodrigo Badilla was suspended from the 1998 World Cup for failing to sufficiently report a $50,000 bribe attempt to fix a qualifying match in october 1997 between Japan and the United Arab Emirates. Badilla was informed by an anonymous caller, but reported the matter only to another referee and not to FIFA officials. He was not suspected of trying to fix the match.
