The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has fined Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) $31,000 (N11.1m) for the conduct of her fans in last month’s World Cup qualifier against Cameroon in Uyo.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles beat Cameroon 4-0 in a 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier in Uyo, after goals from Odion Ighalo, Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho.

FIFA also fined German Football Federation $33,000 due to chanting of Nazi slogans by her fans at a World Cup qualifying game in Czech Republic.

They also said “The range of charges against Germany included fans encroaching on the field and setting off fireworks at the game in Prague.”

Nigeria’s super Eagles currently have fifteen players already in camp ahead of the clash against Zambia on Saturday, September 7, 2017.
