The Nigeria Football Federation found that one player scored 14 goals in a 79-0 win in one of two fixed play-off games involving amateur teams seeking promotion to the professional league this month, www.nigeriasoccernet.com has reported.

In the other match, which ended 67-0 and was played at the same time, four goals were scored in a minute.

The NFF made public its findings after it banned all the players and officials involved in the games for life for match-fixing when Plateau United Feeders beat Akurba FC and Police Machine beat Babayaro FC by the scarcely believable scores.

The winning teams both wanted to boost their goal tallies to clinch promotion, having won the same amount of games.

The NFF said the four clubs were each banned for 10 years for their ?fraudulent conspiracy?.
