Sports Victor Moses, Mikel, Ighalo Risk World Cup Ban In Yaounde



Nigeria’s leading scorer in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers Victor Moses, skipper Mikel Obi and comebacking striker Odion Ighalo risk a second booking in Yaounde, which could cause them to be banned for next month’s qualifying game at home against Zambia.

A second booking in the qualifiers will fetch a player a one-match suspension.

Ighalo was the latest player to be booked in the qualifiers after he displayed a tribute to Jesus on his inside shirt after he scored the all-important opening goal against Cameroon yesterday.

Victor Moses, who posted another Man-of-the-match performance against Cameroon and is the leading scorer for Nigeria in the qualifiers, as well as Mikel are also walking a tight rope after they were cautioned in previous qualifiers.

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.
