Long time FIFA referee Ibrahim Chaibou had to retire because of the age limit at the end of 2011.

In 2011 FIFA started an inquiry into possible match fixing concerning Chaibou (and others who were not named). The matches were friendlies and most goals came from penalties. Friendlies are often a bit dodgy, the matches are often organized by companies that have ties with gambling syndicates. The matches in South Africa, before the World Cup were organized by a company called Football4U which has had dealings with a infamous gambling boss called Wilson Raj Perumal.
