FIFA Fine Nigeria N64 Million Over MKO World Cup Fracas



World soccer ruling body, FIFA has imposed a 150,000 Swiss Franc (about 154,128.75 USD) fine on Nigeria following 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.

There was a reported break of law and order after the ill-fated 1-1 draw encounter as the Black Stars edged Nigeria out of the Qatar 2022 World Cup race on the away goals rule.

FIFA has also ordered Nigeria to play the next home game behind closed doors and that will be against Sierra Leone.
