Consequent to the unruly behaviour of the fans at the end of the second leg Qatar 2022 World Cup play-off between the Super Eagles and Black Stars of Ghana at the Moshood Abiola Stadium on March 29, the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) has slammed a 150,000 Swiss Franc (about 154,128.75 USD) fine on Nigeria.
It would be recalled that there was a breakdown of law and order after the ill-fated 1-1 draw encounter, as the Black Stars edged Nigeria out of the Qatar 2022 race on the away goals rule.
FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee had condemned the poor organisation of the match for lack of order and security at the match, adding that there was, “failure to implement existing safety rules and failure to ensure that law and order are maintained in the stadium, invasion of the field of play and throwing of objects.”
FIFA also ruled that Nigeria will play its next home match without fans.
