How 79 goals were scored in Nigerian League match

Two
matches in Nigeria’s Amateur league game witnessed a combined, mind-boggling
total of 146 goals.
Police
Machine FC from Yola obliterated Babayaro FC from Gombe by 67-0.
Not
to be outdone, Plateau United Feeders from Jos made it 79-0 against Akurba FC
from Nasarawa.
The
four teams were involved in one of eight groups in the Nigerian Amateur
Division 4 play-offs, the sixth tier of domestic football in the country.
Going
into the last round of games at the Bauchi centre, Police Machine and Plateau
United Feeders were level on points, and goal difference was expected to
determine progress.
NFF
head of Competitions Mohammed Sanusi expressed outrage at the results.
“This
is a disgrace. We have confirmed the results from the centre and it is totally
unacceptable,” he tells KickOffNigeria.com. “The amateur league board will take
a decision on it as soon as possible.”
In
the interim, Tanko Maiyaki, the coordinator for the Bauchi centre, has
announced the immediate cancellation of all results from the centre.
Amateur
league board Secretary Emmanuel Adesanya added that the match officials had
also been suspended pending further disciplinary action.
“The
match officials have been suspended. The good news is that none of these teams
are part of our league as yet. At the moment, they are simply representatives
of their states, and only the group winners would have qualified to join the
Nationwide Amateur League.
“We
cannot allow such fraudulent teams to be part of our league. But the board will
take a final decision.”
