Accra - Ghana has ordered an investigation into how the head of the country's soccer association spent $200,000 in government money meant to prepare for the 2014 World Cup.
A report issued Friday night said the probe of Kwesi Nyantakyi would begin immediately and that investigators would also conduct an audit to review claims the national team incurred more than $1 million in debt during friendly matches against Cape Verde, Nigeria and Togo.
The soccer association has not explained the debt in detail. It has said $350,000 received following a friendly match with Japan was used to offset the debt - a claim that will also be scrutinized.
The report said the soccer association "must make available all contracts for friendly matches played" and name all match agents involved.
