The trio of John Obi Mikel, Odion Ighalo and Victor Moses all run the risk of being banned from Nigeria’s World Cup qualifier against Zambia next month.
The trio of Odion Ighalo, Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel risk being banned for next month’s World Cup qualifier against the Chipolopolo of Zambia, if they go into the referee’s book when they face Cameroon on Monday.
All three players were on target as Nigeria smashed Cameroon 4-0 in the first of two legs of games, and while Ighalo was the only one of the three who got into the referee’s book on Friday, the duo of Mikel and Moses are also one booking away from being suspended.
Victor Moses was cautioned in the 3-1 win over Algeria in November, while Mikel’s name got into the referee’s bad books two minutes to the end of the 2-1 win against Zambia in Ndola, also last year.
Ighalo was booked after he showed the contents of his inner wear after putting Nigeria in the lead in the win over Cameroon.
