Match fixing in soccer is nothing new. So when the The National Crime Agency contacted the Scottish Football Association about a possible rigging of the friendly between Scotland and Nigeria I wasn’t really surprised.

Red flags were raised when the Asian markets took a certain amount of action on some of these international friendlies. That’s not to say that players from either team were involved, but then this happened.

Austin Ejide, the backup keeper threw the ball into his own net.

Luckily the goal was disallowed.
