Ex Eagle Ndubuisi Egbo In Hot Water Over Match Fixing; UEFA Starts InvestigationsEuropean Football governing body, UEFA has launched an inquiry after Yenicami Ağdelen striker Peter Olayinka revealed that match fixing exists in the Albanian championship.

These are the facts of the case according to Albanian sports daily, Panorama Sport.

In a no-holds-barred interview, Peter Olayinka bravely implicated manager of Bylis Ballsh, Ndubuisi Egbo, with the attacker alleging that the retired Super Eagles goalkeeper instructed the Nigerians in the squad  to throw away matches.

Also, Egbo fielded an understrength team in games he wanted lost, according to the 18 - year - old forward.

The expose was first investigated by the Ethics Committee of the Albanian Federation but UEFA is now very much interested in the high profile case.

To that end, a representative of the continental body will travel to Cyprus, where Olayinka plies his trade,  to interview the Nigerian striker.

In the coming days, the Albanian Federation will interrogate Ndubuisi Egbo as it is alleged he helped in manipulating matches in the Super League.
These investigations by UEFA would be opening a whole new can of worms regarding the transfer of the whistle-blower, Peter Olayinka.

In an interview with Francis Ogette, the agent of the teenager, he told allnigeriasoccer.com that his client was forced to play in the Albanian championship despite being below the statutory age of 18, which is against the laws of UEFA.
