Ghana Asks Police To Investigate Match-Fixing

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has asked police to investigate two men over match-fixing allegations.

It alleges they have been "misrepresenting the GFA with an attempt to defraud".

The request came after the Daily Telegraph and Channel 4 reported match-fixing claims allegedly uncovered during a sting operation.

They claim a Ghanaian club official and a Fifa agent said they could arrange the rigging of matches involving the national team.

The men were "allegedly filmed claiming that they would bribe GFA officials to ensure that the contract is signed," the federation said in a statement.

The GFA says no contract was signed and "the two gentlemen did not make such corrupt offers".

"We wish to assure the public that we will not tolerate such misrepresentations and we will seek strong sanctions against such individuals if such claims are found to be true," the statement added.
