A former Super Eagles player and coach, Samson Siasia, has been slammed with a life ban by the world football governing body, FIFA.

The adjudicatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee of the world football body found Siasia, a former official of the Nigeria Football Federation, guilty of having accepted that he would receive bribes in relation to the manipulation of matches in violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics.
