A Finnish court has convicted two brothers of match-fixing in Finland.
The Oulu District Court says the Yobe brothers were found guilty of taking €50,000 in bribes to influence the outcome of a game between TPS of Turku and their club AC Oulu last September.
Donewell and Dominic Yobe were each given seven-month suspended sentences and ordered to pay the sum of the bribe to the state. They pleaded guilty.
The court said Friday that the brothers had deliberately played “below their normal level” and made decisions that allowed TPS to win the game 5-0.
