Nigerian Teams Suspended Indefinitely By Football Association For 'Scandalous' Goal-Fest

Nigerian football authorities have suspended four teams involved in "mind-boggling" playoff results, describing the 79-0 and 67-0 scorelines as "scandalous," according to Andrew Warshaw of INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL. Plateau United Feeders and Police Machine FC went into their respective games level on points, both needing convincing wins to earn promotion to the lowest tier of the Nigeria Nationwide League. The Nigerian Football Federation described the results as "a mind-boggling show of shame never previously witnessed in Nigeria." Nigerian Football Federation Organizing Committee Chair Muke Umeh said, "It is unacceptable -- a scandal of huge proportions. The teams are suspended indefinitely, pending further sanctions" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 7/10).
