Match Fixing LOL

Allyuh could believe Abedi Pele even appealing??

Pele set up FC Nania back in his homeland 10 years ago and last month the club stood on the verge of reaching the country's top flight for the first time. Going into the last day of the season, Nania were level on points with Great Mariners, with both sides knowing goal difference could be crucial in deciding who gets promoted. Mariners duly found the net 28 times without reply in an obviously above-board victory over Mighty Jets - only to be pipped to the top by Nania, who squeezed past Okwawu United 31-0. Both matches had been 1-0 at half-time.

Somehow sensing foul play was afoot, the Ghanaian FA launched an immediate investigation and quickly concluded that money had changed hands at half-time in both games. It demoted and fined all four teams and suspended 46 players and officials for a year. All have protested their innocence and vowed to appeal, not least Pele, who insists that his side's second-half rampage can be explained by the simple fact that Okwawu were down to seven men following genuine injuries to four players, including their first- and second-choice keepers.

"My contention is that while the scoreline may raise eyebrows, it doesn't provide irrefutable proof that the match was fixed," he howled. "I've never even met the Okwawu chairman," continued Pele, who also claimed he'd left the stadium long before the match's curious denouement - which, of course, means that when his brother, Solar Ayew, described him being carried shoulder-high across the pitch by jubilant fans after the final whistle he was gravely mistaken.

Here how the scoring went though:

At half-time both Jets and Nania are leading 1-0.

After 55 minutes, the Jets are up 3-0 and Nania are leading 2-0.

After 60 minutes, The Jets rolling at 5-0 and Nania still leading 2-0.

Full time scores:

Mighty Jets 29 Mariners 0
Nania          31  Okwawu 0


Now I not even going to entertain the thought that this was not a fix, but imagine that things soooo bad that you have to set up an unbelievable score because you know that your opponent is going to cheat in an equally ridiculous and unscrupulous fashion.

The irony is if one of the teams didnít cheat they probably would have been promoted by default after the cheating team got punished.

Video of the 2 games that have now led to FIFA suspending the South African FA Chief and 4 others.

According to the BBC:
Quote
South Africa's 5-0 win over Guatemala and 2-1 win over Colombia in May 2010 - two weeks before the World Cup kicked off - have long been under suspicion.

Niger referee Chaibou Ibrahim awarded three penalties for handball in the Guatemala game and Fifa has been trying to question him for more than a year over his handling of several matches.

All three goals in the match against Colombia, refereed by a Kenyan official, came from penalty kicks.

Think of the 2022 conversation regarding reparations as the item tabled for future discussion when initially raised for negotiation during talks in 1834. A lot of intere$t has accrued.
