World Cup 2022 Qualifier: FIFA Imposes Bans on Nigeria, Senegal

Following fan disturbance during the 2022 World Cup play-offs last month, FIFA has ordered Senegal and Nigeria to play one match behind closed doors.

Fans pointed laser pointers towards Egypt captain Mohamed Salah after he failed a penalty shootout in the second leg in Dakar, which Senegal won.

Senegal was fined 175,000 Swiss francs ($180,000) for a pitch invasion, an insulting banner, and failing to “guarantee that peace and order was maintained in the stadium,” among other things.
