NFF May Face FIFA Punishment After Ighalo’s Goal Celebration

Nigeria could face sanctions from FIFA, following Odion Ighalo’s yellow card after his goal celebration.

Ighalo lifted his shirt to reveal a message and was instantly booked by Egyptian referee, Ghead Grisha, after scoring the first goal in the Super Eagles’ 4-0 victory over Cameroon in Uyo on Friday.

“He told me that the message on my shirt was about religion because it’s ‘thank you Jesus,” Ighalo told KweséESPN.

FIFA has outlawed the display of unsanctioned commercial, political, religious or personal slogans or statements in undershirts.

Sanctions are mainly fines.

Referee Grisha is expected to include the incident in his report for further action by FIFA.

Ighalo, who hobbled off with an ice pack, also insisted his injury was not serious.

“It was just a tight hamstring, but I am fine now,” he said.
