The South African Football Association (Safa) on Wednesday said it will fully cooperate with the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) into match-fixing allegations.

Reports have emerged that two Bafana Bafana World Cup warm-up games were manipulated. The allegations relates to South Africa's 5-0 win against Guatemala and their other victory over Colombia.

South Africa's game with Guatemala was refereed by Niger's Ibrahim Chaibou, who handled Nigeria's controversial win over Argentina recently.

FIFA suspects unusual betting patterns were caused by possible fixing.

Safa President Kirsten Nematandani said the association's hands are clean.

"We ready to cooperate, we have nothing to hide and records are there in terms of whatever information they will need. Safa will never be involved in match-fixing at all."
