Fifa has banned former El Salvador coach Ramon Maradiaga from football for two years for his involvement in a match-fixing case.

The world governing body say Maradiaga did not disclose a meeting in which a third party offered "financial compensation" to his players to alter the result of a game with Canada.

His players rejected the inducement and reported it on 5 September 2016.

Maradiaga was also fined 20,000 Swiss francs (£14,734).
