A former Nigeria international Dickson Etuhu has been found guilty for attempted match-fixing by a Swedish appeals court.

The Court of Appeals in Stockholm in a release on Wednesday said that Etuhu and an unnamed former player tried to influence AIK keeper Kyriakos “Kenny” Stamatopoulos to fix a match in Sweden’s top division in 2017.

“The content of what the men submitted to the player (Stamatopoulos) was so clear that it should be considered a criminal offer of bribe,” the court said.

Etuhu escaped a jail sentence but was instead fined and sentenced to serve probation without further details being made public.

Etuhu had initially been acquitted by a court in 2018 but that ruling was appealed by prosecutor Johan Lindmark.

However, the Nigerian international said he will be appealing the latest ruling at the Supreme Court.

Etuhu played 20 times for the Super Eagles including Africa Cup of Nations in 2008 and 2010 as well as the World Cup in South Africa. (The Guardian)
