Sierra Leone football bosses launch probe after two games ended 95-0 and 91-1

The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has launched an investigation into two first-division games that ended with a score of 91-1 and 95-0, which it describes as impractical results.

The West African country’s football governing body said it was investigating officials and players involved in the two games, in which Gulf FC defeated Koquima Lebanon 91-1 and Lumbenbu United were defeated 95-0 by Kahula Rangers.

The SLFA said it had no tolerance for match manipulation or anything like that.

“The general public is therefore assured that the said case will be thoroughly investigated and anyone found guilty will face the full force of the law,” it said in a statement.

If confirmed, the two fault lines would be among the highest in football history.

The highest level is said to have occurred in Madagascar in 2002, when AS Adema defeated SO l’Emyrne 149-0.

SO l’Emyrne players deliberately scored one own goal after another in protest of decisions by the referees with which they disagreed.
