Three South African football officials have been banned by Fifa
following an investigation into international friendlies prior to the 2010 World Cup.

Leslie Sedibe was banned for five years and fined 20,000 Swiss francs ($20,250) by FIFA’s Ethics Committee. Steve Goddard and Adeel Carelse, both former heads of the South African Football Assocation’s refereeing department, were each banned for two years.

The cases were linked to that of former SAFA executive member and head of referees Lindile Kika, who was banned for six years by FIFA last October.
Kika denied being involved in match-fixing.
Fifa found the officials guilty of infringements of its code of ethics relating to general rules of conduct, loyalty and duty of disclosure.
