How Nigeria Almost Lost Her World Cup Ticket With Shehu Abdullahi Mess

How Nigeria Almost Lost Her World Cup Ticket With Shehu Abdullahi Mess


The Super Eagles were dealt with point and cash deductions, but they were lucky to retain their ticket to the biggest soccer finals

Fifa has sanctioned the Nigeria Football Federation for fielding an ineligible player in their World Cup qualifying encounter against Algeria, but it will not affect the country’s participation in Russia next year.

The Super Eagles fielded right-back Abdullahi Shehu - who was on one-match suspension - in their final qualifying clash against the Desert Foxes on November 10 which ended in a 1-1 draw.

But the tie have been forfeited and a 3-0 victory have been awarded in favour of the north Africans, with the NFF slammed with a fine of CHF 6,000.

However, the sanction has no significant impact on the three-time African champions’ - who had already sealed qualification prior to the match - participation at the quadrennial event.

Also, on the Group B qualification log, there is an insignificant change as Algeria still maintain their position at the base of the log, but now with four points, and Gernot Rohr’s men are unshaken at the summit, but with 13 points, five better than then-close contender Zambia.

Meanwhile, NFF president Amaju Pinnick has directed that an internal probe be set up and persons found guilty be dealt with.

“We accept the decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee to fine the NFF and award the match to Algeria,” Pinnick told NFF media.

“However, this is a grave error and somebody must be punished. We apologize to Nigerians for this and assure that this will not in any way derail or even distract us in our well-laid plan to ensure that the Super Eagles have a great outing in Russia.

“At the same time, I want to assure that persons responsible for this slip would not be given just a slap on the wrist. We are actually looking at a re-organization of the Technical Department.

“The Technical Committee will henceforth play serious superintending role on all details, no matter how minute, in technical matters.

“It is important that all committees and departments at the NFF should move at the same pace as the Executive Committee.”

Everton wants former Chelsea midfielder Mikel

Everton wants former Chelsea midfielder Mikel

Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi is on the rader of Merseyside club Everton who are planning a shock move for the experienced midfielder in January.

Everton have enjoyed rejuvenation since former England boss Sam Allardyce took over the helm of affairs at the club.

"Yes, he has many teams interested – almost three clubs in England want him, including Everton," a source close to the player told 90minutesgoal.com

"You know Mikel is in the prime of his career and his next contract may likely be his last – so getting it right will be very important," the source concluded.

Allardyce is set to meet with his players in a bid to question their desire to still stick with the club and has promised to sell players who are surplus to requirements to create space for fresh legs.

Mikel, 30, currently plays for Chinese side Tiajin Teda in the Chinese Super League and currently earns £190,000 a week in China.

Mikel spent 10 years in Chelsea, playing 374 times for them and winning 11 trophies including two Premier League titles and a Champions League in 2012.

His current deal with his Chinese club will expire in 2019.

By Augustine Akhilomen

Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr has revealed that the team must overcome Croatia hurdle in their opening first group game if they must make it out of the group stage of the 2018 World Cup.

Having been pitted in group D alongside, Argentina, Croatia and Iceland during the 2018 World Cup draws on December 1st, Rohr insisted that Nigeria must win their opening match against Croatia to boost the team's confidence.

“The first game is always the most difficult,” the 64 - year - old German said after the December 1 draw in Moscow .

“It’ s the first game and if we start well we can have a chance to go through. Croatia will be the most important game because they have technical quality and play very good football. ”

Mohamed Salah of Egypt Wins BBC African Footballer of the Year 2017 - Beat Inform Victor Moses

Mohamed Salah of Egypt Wins BBC African Footballer of the Year 2017 - Beat Inform Victor Moses


Egypt and Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah, has beaten in-form Nigeria and Super Eagles star, Victor Moses, to the 2017 BBC African Footballer Of The Year Award.

Salah picked up the prestigious award on Monday to further elongate Nigeria’s long wait to have one of her players win the award.

Austin Okocha is the last Nigerian male player to win the award having won it in 2003 and 2004.

This is also the second time that Victor Moses will be getting a nomination but won’t be winning the top prize.

Aside from Moses, Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Guinea’s Naby Keita, and Sadio Mane of Senegal were the other beaten finalists for 2017.


“I am very happy to win this award,” Salah told BBC Sport.


“It’s always a special feeling when you win something. I feel like I had a great year, so I’m very happy.”

Salah, the current Premier League top scorer with 13 goals, has enjoyed a stellar year for both club and country.

In early 2017, the forward was the central figure for Egypt as they finished runners-up at the Africa Cup of Nations.

He also helped his country secure a ticket to the world after almost 20 years of absence.

It is yet to be seen if Salah will make it a double over Moses and his other rivals as the 25-year is also nominated for the African footballer of the year award.


Akodessewa Fetish Market, The World's Largest Voodoo Market In Togo (Graphic Pics)

Akodessewa Fetish Market, The World's Largest Voodoo Market In Togo (Graphic Pics)


Togo’s capital city of Lomé is the birthplace of the largest Voodoo market in the world – a kind of super supply store for fetishes, charms and anything else one might need for a ritual. The Akodessewa Fetish Market, or Marche des Feticheurs, is a place where you can find anything from leopard heads and human skulls to Vodou (voodoo) priests who bless and create fetishes or predict the future and make medicines to heal whatever ails you.

 
 
Though many people think of Haiti as Voodoo’s biggest stronghold, the religion originated in West Africa. Vodoun is the official religion of neighboring Benin and is still the largest religion in the area, which is obvious given that the outdoor market’s location is in the heart of Togo’s capital. Although the market is owned and run by Beninese. The Akodessewa Fetish Market is a mecca to local practitioners and they travel there from all over the African continent. Many believers view the Marche des Feticheurs as a kind of hospital or pharmacy – it is the place you go when you either cannot afford traditional treatment or traditional treatment has failed you. Here you can find talismans and charms good for treating everything from the flu or infertility to removing the blackest of curses.

In the practice of Voodoo every single creature is potent and divine, whether alive or dead, and in the Akodessewa Fetish Market you may find them all – monkeys, alligators, goats, leopards, gazelles, and many, many more – in various stages of decay and stacked up in macabre piles for blocks.

The outdoor location doesn’t quite suppress the stench but at least the huge market is in the open air. It is a jarring place for tourists who are not used to the idea of animal sacrifice as part of worship or using pieces of the dead as talismans, but for locals who practice the religion, it is a treasure and a necessity.

'Police brutality is everywhere, You don't have to end it, you just have to fix it so that it will be on the minimum level' - Former SARS officer, Yomi insists

'Police brutality is everywhere, You don't have to end it, you just have to fix it so that it will be on the minimum level' - Former SARS officer, Yomi insists



A former officer of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), ASP Abayomi Ekundayo aka Yomi Sars is of the opinion that police brutality occurs around the world and claims that it is possible to however reduce it to the minimum level. This he states is a better solution to the crisis - rather than to terminate the squad.
In an interview with Pulse, Yomi who nows works under the Intelligence Response Team - that led to
the arrest of Kidnap Kingpin Evans - said quite a number of things and excerpts include;
"90% of those videos online, those people are not SARS personnel. See finish is what caused all of this. SARS should leave the stop and search for the anti-robbery and area commmanders. Police work is Federal Government work. Why would somebody give you target? That is exageration (in response to allegations that SARS officers are given monetary targets to meet)."
When asked whether SARS Brutality is a result of frustration, he said;
"That's the thing I have been saying. If I tell you my salary, you'll say wow. No life insurance. Nigerian Police are ther most understanding in the world. If Police are doing the right thing they should do, do you know how many people will be in Jail?
"Most of the boys ranting on social media are in Dubia and Malaysia. Can they face Police there? Police brutality is everywhere, You don't have to end it, you just have to fix it so that it will be on the minimun level.
"All the people saying END SARS, let them volunteer two of their family members and give them the guns to face whatever. A SARS Personnel coming back home is not guaranteed. We go on operation sometimes for 7 days. 90% of people shouting ENDSars are not legit."
