The vice-president of Fifa has called on the organisation to fully investigate match-fixing after an investigation found that the president of Ghanas football association agreed that the national team would take part in games others were prepared to rig.
Jim Boyce said that anyone involved in football match-fixing should be given heavy jail sentences and barred from the game for life.
His comments came as Fifa announced that it was evaluating the matter and said that Ghana had reported the investigation by The Daily Telegraph and Channel Fours Dispatches programme to the governing body. The World Cup organiser said it took allegations of match manipulation very seriously.
