FIFA, CAF Launch Investigation Into Nigeria-Zambia World Cup Qualifier Game

Fifa and Caf have launched an investigation into the behaviour of Zambian fans during Saturday’s World Cup qualifier between Nigeria and Zambia.

It was gathered that Fifa are unhappy with the Zambian fans for displaying a banner, “H.E. E.C. LUNGU GOD BLESS YOU” in the stands at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, in support of ‘unpopular’ Zambian president, Edgar Chagwa Lungu.

Fifa frown at the display of political or religious messages during games, and Zambia could be hammered by the body.

”However, keeping in mind that the rules need to be applied in a neutral and fair manner across FIFA ’s 211 member associations, the display, among others, of any political or religious symbol is strictly prohibited,”chairman of the Disciplinary Committee, Claudio Sulser said.

”In the stadium and on the pitch, there is only room for sport, nothing else.”

Reports show that the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) are not aware of the fans’ behaviour in Nigeria.

  1. This is just stuped, baseless and unfair from the so called f×cking FIFA and all it’s associates, Zambians are busy complaining about the poor officiating of that match by the Botswana referee and his counterparts. We scored a goal,it was falsely considered considered offside, just before Moabi scored that goal, Victor Moses filed our(he pushed our defender terribly to the extent that our defender failed ) , what happened, the referee so it a fair play. And now instead of CAF or FIFA updating us on the steps been taken to punish such a poor officiating on such a competitive match,here we receive such slaps of insults. Why because the so called FIFA & CAF want to stripe a fine on our poor, ignorant football association so as not focus on trying to know what made that referee to make such corrupt decisions. Now what can we do if CAF OFFICIALS THEMSELVES ARE THIEVES AND CORRUPT JUST LIKE THAT SO CALLED UN POPULAR PRESIDENT CALLED JONATHAN LUNGU.
