Ex-coach guilty of match-fixing

CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- The former manager of South Africa's national soccer team has been found guilty of trying to fix a league promotion playoff game in 2011.

The South African Football Association says Philemon Setshedi was convicted Friday on match-fixing charges in a commercial crimes court. His sentencing hearings begin in February. The federation says he was found guilty of attempting "to unduly and improperly influence the outcome" of the game last year in Cape Town. The governing body called it "an historic" first match-fixing conviction in South Africa and said it was proof the work of government agencies and FIFA's security department was "starting to yield positive results." SAFA President Kirsten Nematandani encouraged people to use a 24-hour soccer anti-corruption telephone number in South Africa to report suspicious behavior.
