A fine of 150,000 Swiss Franc (about 154,128.75 USD) has been slammed on Nigeria by the World soccer ruling body, FIFA.

FIFA imposed the fine on Nigeria over 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 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 race on the away goals rule.

In a dispatch by FIFA, the body’s Disciplinary Committee decried the poor organisation of the match for lack of order and security at the match, adding 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’.

Apart from the 150,000 CHF fine, Nigeria will play its next home match without fans.
