Kevin Sammut was judged to have attempted to manipulate the outcome of a Euro 2008 qualifier against Norway in June 2007, which Malta lost 4-0 in Oslo.
Sammut, 31, was originally handed a ten-year suspension in August but he chose to appeal the decision. As did UEFA's disciplinary inspector, who requested a life ban to be imposed.
