Match Fixing: Nigeria goalie Austin Ejide deliberately throws ball into own net Vs Scotland

I implore coach Stephen Keshi to investigate this video and dismiss Ejide from the Nigerian squad if he is found culpable. This is just embarrassing!

Nigeria goalkeeper Austin Ejide scored a truly unbelievable own goal during the friendly match with Scotland at Fulham’s Craven Cottage.

The glovesman came to catch a ball into the box, but despite seemingly having been able to grab it easily, he appeared to throw the ball into his own net.

Scotland celebrated regardless, but the strike was eventually ruled out for a slight foul on Ejide.

It happened just 24 hours after the Scottish FA were warned that the match with Nigeria could be targeted by match fixers, after an alert by the National Crime Agency.
