Hashmin Musah, a Ghanaian footballer who recently shot to prominence for scoring two deliberate own goals has been charged with match-fixing.
Musah made headlines in July 2021 when he scored past his own goalkeeper on two occasions back-to-back against Ashanti Gold in the Ghanaian topflight league.
The defender was introduced as a substitute with 12 minutes left on the clock and his side, Inter Allies, trailing 5-0.
But rather than help his team fight back, Musah went on to score two deliberate own goals to ensure the match ends 7-0.

When asked about his shocking performance, the defender claimed he did it on purpose to make sure the game did not finish 5-1 - which was the scoreline placed in a bet.
"I heard it in our hotel that a bet had been made for a correct scoreline of 5-1 against my club Inter Allies," he told Kumasi FM per Goal.
"I decided to spoil that bet because I don't condone betting," the 24-year-old added.
However, Musah's deliberate move has now landed him in trouble having been charged with match-fixing.
