HANOI, Vietnam - Vietnamese police are investigating an alleged match-fixing incident involving 11 professional soccer players.

Hoang Manh Truong, the owner of the top-flight V-League side the Vissai Ninh Binh, said Monday the players had admitted to police they conspired to fix the result of an Asian Football Confederation Cup match against Malaysian club Kelantan last month after placing bets with a bookmaker.

He said police are widening their investigation into other domestic and international matches played by his club.
