Singapore:

The former coach of Malaysia's national soccer team was convicted of match-fixing Tuesday in Singapore, local media reported.

Chow Kwai Lam was found guilty of attempting to bribe a goalkeeper in Singapore's S League to let in goals in a June 2005 match, Channel NewsAsia reported on its website, citing a court ruling.

Chow reportedly offered the Paya Lebar Punggol goalkeeper up to 300 Singapore dollars ($197) plus a further undisclosed sum to fix the match, the report said.

Confirmation and details were not immediately available from the court.

Chow, 63, had denied the charges.

The sentencing was set for April 10. He faces a maximum $66,000 fine and a five-year jail term.

Chow, who resigned from Paya Lebar Punggol in May 2005, coached Kuala Lumpur to victory in three Malaysia Cup finals in the country's M League from 1987 to 1989.
