In World organized sports, match fixing is playing a game to achieve an already predetermined outcome, often breaking the rules of conduct and the law of good sportsmanship.
Today saw a duel between Soweto's two rivals, Kaizer Chiefs and Moroka Swallows. Kaizer Chiefs managed to find a goal in the 20th minute that brought down Moroka Swallows. Early in the second half, Moroka Swallows scored two goals which gave them the lead.
Two goals scored by Moroka Swallows angered the supporters of Kaizer Chiefs, and they finally said that Kaizer Chiefs sold the game to Moroka Swallows to stay out of the relegation zone. After 85 minutes, phenomenal play down the left freed Bernard Parker from the Kaizer Chiefs to strike and score again for the visitors.
I'm really happy that Kaizer Chiefs set up this match because the Swallows should play at least the playoffs and Baroka got straight into it. They had repeatedly humiliated the Soweto giant; Masuluke crashes into a bicycle; They beat the Pirates (my team) in the Telkom KO final and beat Lord Kambala as Chiefs League. Baroque terrorizes Sowetan's team and flees from him. The Swallows is played from a script. We knew from the start that we had to save the swallow.
Below are some comments from some Kaizer Chiefs fans.
I believe and understand that today's match is set for the Moroka Swallows to stay out of relegation, but don't forget that we still have a lot of unresolved issues and if the coaching staff is not fixed before the new season starts, we will still have complaints. I think we need a coach at the moment because they are familiar with the roles of the players. Good luck with the intelligence of the trained team players.
From the above comments, you can see that everyone thought the game was fixed. Do you think the Kaizer Chiefs played a role in keeping the Moroka Swallows from outright relegation? Please leave your comments in the comments section below.
