FIFA sanction: Babangida warns NFF

 Former Super Eagles winger Tijani Babangida has called on the Nigeria Football Federation to learn from the recent FIFA sanction of deducting a World Cup qualifying point from Nigeria and fining the NFF 6,000 Swiss francs.



The final African qualifying Group B fixture for the Russia 2018 World Cup ended in a 1-1 draw, but FIFA on Tuesday awarded all three points to Algeria following Nigeria’s use of ineligible defender Abdullahi Shehu in the encounter.

Babangida however called on the football house to ensure they prepare well for the World Cup in Russia.

“The only thing I can say is for the NFF to prepare well for the World Cup so that they will not disappoint Nigerians.”Nigeria will face Argentina, Croatia and Iceland in the first round of the World Cup next year
