The Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Terenga Lions of Senegal have been banned by FIFA, the world football regulatory body.

Both West African sides have been given a one-match stadium ban, according to FIFA’s official website. FIFA made the decision as a result of crowd violence in the second legs of the games against Ghana and Senegal, respectively.

 

Because of the crowd invasion after the game against the Black Stars, Nigeria was fined 150,000 Swiss francs and given a one-match stadium ban, while Senegal was fined 175,000 Swiss francs and given a one-match stadium ban for crowd invasion and the use of laser lights on Egyptian players during the penalty shoot-outs.

The Democratic Republic of Congo and Lebanon also received the same fine from FIFA for crowd trouble in their respective games.
