Four Nigerian clubs suspended in goalfest

Four Nigerian amateur teams involved in two promotion deciders on the weekend that yielded 146 goals have been suspended.

Plateau United Feeders crushed Akurba, 79-0, while Police Machine demolished Babayaro, 67-0, in third division promotion playoffs.

Both winning teams had been looking for a superior goal difference to advance.

“It is unacceptable, this is a scandal of huge proportions,” Nigerian Football Federation vice president Mike Umeh told reporters on Tuesday.

Feeders scored 72 goals in the second half while Police Machine netted 61 after the break.

Going into the last round of the playoffs, Police Machine and Feeders were level on points.
