FIFA Sanctions Equatorial Guinea For Fielding Nigerian Player At Rio 2016

FIFA has said that A Nigerian played for Equatorial Guinea during the preliminary competition of Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Rio 2016.





A Cameroonian also played for the country during the tournament as investigated by FIFA.

The football governing body on Thursday said the two players ‘forged and falsified documents’ to be nationalities of the country.

According to the rule of the international leather game, Fifa allows players to represent a country if they have lived in the country continuously for a period of time, or a parent or grandparent was born there.

Hence, a statement from FIFA said Equatorial Guinea has however been sanctioned after the investigation showed it fielded ineligible players during the preliminary competition and the use of forged and falsified documents by two of its players( a Nigerian and Cameroonian).
