World Cup 2022: FIFA Imposes Bans On Nigeria, Senegal

FIFA has ordered Senegal and Nigeria to play one match behind closed doors after crowd disorder during last month’s 2022 World Cup play-offs.

Recall that fans shone laser pointers at Egypt captain Mohamed Salah as he missed in the penalty shootout, won by Senegal, in the second leg in Dakar.

Senegal were fined 175,000 Swiss francs ($180,000) over several incidents, including a pitch invasion, an offensive banner and for failing “to ensure that law and order are maintained in the stadium”.

FIFA issued a raft of sanctions worldwide on Monday after studying dozens of cases from World Cup qualifying games played since the start of the year.

Nigeria was hit with a one-game stadium closure and fined 150,000 Swiss francs after fans invaded the pitch in Abuja following their World-Cup play-off defeat against Ghana.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Lebanon received similar punishments following disturbances at games against Morocco and Syria, respectively.
