GENEVA, April 5 (Xinhua) -- Soccer's world governing body FIFA said on Friday no match-fixing was found in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers after more than 500 matches played so far.

FIFA security director Ralf Mutschke told The Associated Press up to now "we don't have any leads that any match has been thrown" and they are "confident that nothing will happen through the qualification."

The full program of about 820 preliminary matches ends in November.

Earlier, FIFA reached agreement with South African officials on how to complete an investigation into the 2010 World Cup host's allegedly manipulated warm-up matches ahead of the tournament.
