FIFA have slammed an indefinite ban on MKO Stadium, Abuja where Black Stars recently drew 1-1 and eliminated Nigeria from World Cup.

The stadium is banned from hosting international matches until further notice.

The 60,000 capacity stadium begged for mercy after irate Nigeria fans caused mass destruction.

Many Nigeria fans were in high hopes of securing qualification to the 2022 World Cup

This is not the first time such had happened after a game between these two opponents, in 1973 the Blackstars defeated Nigeria 3-2 in the second round of the World Cup qualifiers in Lagos and it was reported that Ghana’s team bus was set ablaze.

Many were surprised with the outcome
