NIGERIA BANNED FROM SOCCER BY PRESIDENT

SOUTH AFRICA – The World Cup is over for one nation but their return home was less than well received!
The continent of Africa has been filled with joy and pride in hosting this year’s World Cup. African teams, however, were unable to capitalize on the home crowd and only one African team was able to make it to the knockout stage. Nigeria was one of those teams eliminated and were unable to fulfill expectations.
Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan has suspended the country’s national team from international competition for two years in response to their disappointing World Cup Campaign.
Nigeria played uninspired and stagnant and failed to make it out of the group stage. Their only point in the tournament came through a 2-2 draw with South Korea.
President Jonathan has now withdrawn the Super Eagles from international competitions until 2012 in an effort to “enable Nigeria to reorganize its football” according to advisor Ima Niboro.
“This directive became necessary following Nigeria’s poor performance in the ongoing World Cup,” Niboro said.
“We have no official information on this matter. However, in general, FIFA’s position regarding political interference in football is well known,” FIFA said in a statement.
FIFA is strongly opposed to government interference in football matters and Sepp Blatter has already warned French president Nicolas Sarkozy after he said he would investigate the team’s disappointing campaign in South Africa.
