Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has fined the Nigerian football federation (NFF) $31,000 for the conduct of its fans’ breach of security during last month’s World Cup qualifier against Cameroon.
Nigeria was charged for improper conduct amongst spectators, invasions of restricted areas by supporters other than the pitch.
The match was held in Uyo, and the Super Eagles won 4-0. The German football federation was also fined 32,000 Swiss francs ($33,000) because fans chanted Nazii slogans at a World Cup qualifying game in the Czech Republic. “The range of charges against Germany included fans encroaching on the field and setting off fireworks at the game in Prague,” FIFA said
