Federation Internationale de Football Association sanctions Nigeria, awards 3-0 victory to Algeria

Nigeria Vs Burkina Faso Friendly Match Cancelled

FIFA's decision will not affect the country's qualification for the World Cup, as they had already secured a spot in Russian Federation before the Algeria match.

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.

"It is important that all committees and departments at the NFF should move at the same pace as the Executive Committee", Pinnick said.

Meanwhile, ex-internationals Clement Temile and Segun Oguns have lamented the negligence.

The defender was shown a yellow card in the October game against Zambia which marked Nigeria's qualification.

Federation Internationale de Football Association also fined the NFF 6,000 Swiss Francs for playing Abdullahi, who was to serve the automatic one-match suspension imposed on him as a result of receiving a caution in two separate matches during the qualifiers in Algeria. We have not been having problems with players clashing with officials over money.

"Following the recent meeting of the Disciplinary Committee, FIFA can today (Tuesday) confirm the latest sanctions imposed for incidents that occurred during the preliminary competition for the FIFA World Cup as well as in worldwide friendlies".

World football governing body, FIFA has sanctioned the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for fielding an ineligible player in the match between Algeria and Nigeria on November 10.

Reacting, Pinnick, who accepted the decision, said it will not distract the NFF nor the Super Eagles as they prepare for the 2018 World Cup.

A visible angry NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, has said that an internal inquiry will be instituted immediately and persons found culpable will be dealt with.

When the draws for the Group Stages were made, the Technical staff made a grave error; assumption. We are actually looking at a re-organisation of the Technical Department.
