NIGERIA ESCAPE WORLD CUP DISMISSAL
Posted on: December 12, 2017, 10:47:52 PM
The Super Eagles were dealt with point and cash deductions, but they were lucky to retain their ticket to the biggest soccer finals.

Fifa has sanctioned the Nigeria Football Federation for fielding an ineligible player in their World Cup qualifying encounter against Algeria, but it will not affect the country’s participation in Russia next year.

The Super Eagles fielded right-back Abdullahi Shehu - who was on one-match suspension - in their final qualifying clash against the Desert Foxes on November 10 which ended in a 1-1 draw.

But the tie have been forfeited and a 3-0 victory have been awarded in favour of the north Africans, with the NFF slammed with a fine of CHF 6,000.
