LUSAKA, June 20 (Xinhua) -- World soccer governing body FIFA has cleared two Zambian players who were involved in a match-fixing scam in Finland, the Post of Zambia reported on Thursday.

Erick Mwanza, communications officer of local soccer governing body, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ), said Nchimunya Mweetwa and Christopher Musonda had been issued with playing licenses after completing their Transfer Marketing System process.

He said the duo was free to start playing immediately and added that FIFA was already looking into the Transfer Marketing System of the other players who were involved in the scam while playing professional football in Finland.

"The two are free to play. They completed their TMS (Transfer Marketing System) process. The rest of the other guys are expected to start playing soon," he was quoted as saying by the paper.

On April 3, 2011, the Finland Football Federation convicted nine Zambian players for match-fixing and FIFA banned from all football activities. The players were initially banned for eight months but FIFA later extended it to April this year.
