Ex-Eagles’ star found guilty of match-fixing

first_imgRelatedPosts No directive to constitute disciplinary committee against us — Ojudu, others ‘Army Officer’ in EFCC net for alleged multiple fraud COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance A Swedish appeals court has found former Nigeria international Dickson Etuhu guilty of match-fixing.The Court of Appeals in Stockholm said in a release on Wednesday it was clear 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.Etuhu, who played for several English clubs, including Manchester City, Sunderland and Fulham, escaped a jail sentence, but was instead fined and sentenced to serve probation, without further details being made public.The 37-year-old, who left AIK Solna in 2016, says he will be appealing against the ruling at the Supreme Court.The court said: “The content of what the men submitted to the player (Stamatopoulos) was so clear that it should be considered a criminal offer of bribe.”Etuhu had initially been acquitted by a court last year but was appealed by prosecutor Johan Lindmark, who told local Swedish newspaper Expressen that he was satisfied with today’s outcome.“It was with satisfaction that I received the verdict today,” Lindmark said.“I had appealed on the grounds that I thought the court of law would change and was not surprised when I saw the verdict.”Etuhu played 20 times for the Super Eagles, including twice at the Africa Cup of Nations in 2008 and 2010, as well as the World Cup in South Africa.last_img read more


Cricket News Shubman Gill credits Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh for his continued success

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Shubman Gill is one of the rising stars in the domestic circuit as well as in the India A circuit. Gill was one of the stars who helped India win the Under-19 World Cup in 2018 which was held in New Zealand while he had a stellar season for Punjab. For the Indian Premier League, he had consistent runs with the Kolkata Knight Riders. In the recent series against West Indies A, Gill managed a double ton, which was the youngest double century by an Indian in first-class cricket. Thus, it came as a surprise when Gill was not picked in the Indian national team for the Windies series.However, Gill is not too perturbed and he is currently focused on doing well for India A in the upcoming series against South Africa A. In an interaction with PTI, Gill thanked the contributions of Rahul Dravid, who was his Under-19 coach and Yuvraj Singh for mentoring him.”Rahul sir has been my coach since the India U-19 days and then India A. There is one basic advice from him which I always keep in mind. He would tell me that come what may, never change your basic game that got you success. He (Dravid) said that if we want to get technically more solid, all the adjustments that we make should be within the confines of our basic game,” elaborated Gill, who won the BCCI’s Best Junior Cricketer award for consecutive years in 2013-14 and 2014-15. Reflecting on the recent A tour of the West Indies, Gill said the thought of saving matches hardly ever crosses his mind as he likes to focus on putting the team in a winning position. “Actually, even when we lost quick wickets, it didn’t strike me or my partner (Hanuma Vihari) that we need to save the match. All we were thinking was how to change the course,” said Gill, who enjoys a staggering average of 78-plus and 1339 runs in just 12 first-class games.”During that innings (his double hundred), the first plan was to see off the remaining part of the third day. The next day, the pitch had some juice, so the first session was important. The next plan was to score 120 off the next 30 overs as their bowlers would be getting a little tired,” he added.Gill understands the pressures of it and who better than Yuvraj Singh to give some sound advice on how to deal with stardom. “Yuvi paaji gives me a lot of advice about handling pressure, fame and adulation. In the Punjab team, I confide a lot in my senior Gurkeerat Singh Mann. And obviously, any for life decision, I always look up to my dad,” Gill said. center_img Shubman Gill averages 78 in First Class cricket.Shubman Gill became youngest first class Indian double centurion.Shubman Gill was the star in the Under-19 World Cup in 2018.last_img read more
