Massimo de Santis
De Santis has been withdrawn from the World Cup
Italian referee Massimo de Santis will not officiate at the World Cup after being implicated in match-fixing allegations that have rocked Italy.

The Italian football federation has also told Fifa it has withdrawn accreditation for assistant referees Alessandro Griselli and Marco Ivaldi.

It said the move must not be considered "prejudicial of legal judgements".

All three officials are among those being investigated in the scandal which has hit four of Italy's top clubs.
