Croatian referee duo Matia Gubica and Boris Milosevic have been linked to a case involving match-fixing betting companies.

The Croatian duo managed the famous Egypt-Denmark quarter-final clash at the 2021 World Cup, which was held in Egypt.

Egypt’s national team bowed out of World Cup competition at the time against Denmark in a penalty shootout after a draw in the first and extra time.

And Danish channel TV2 has revealed it has a report produced by analytics company Sportradar revealing the involvement of eight world-class refereeing teams which are said to have influenced the outcome of 26 previous matches.

The report states that the European Handball Federation received five years ago, specifically in 2018, the international bookmaker’s monitoring of match-fixing referees.

The report states that the matter was discovered by chance after the same referees noticed the management of matches where large amounts of bets were placed on certain things such as a draw between the two halves.

No conclusive evidence has yet been found linking referees to match-fixing.

The Danish channel contacted the two Croatian referees after their names were mentioned in the report of the referees involved, but they denied the matter and that they had anything to do with match-fixing.

For his part, Bent Nygaard, the former Danish player, expressed his surprise at the participation of some referees in the 2023 World Cup, despite their names being linked to involvement in the manipulation of results.

Nygaard clarified his statements that even if referees were justified in doing so, it is expected to affect their decisions during games.
