World football governing body FIFA has thrown out Zambia’s protest regarding the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Nigeria on 7 October in Uyo, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Nigeria won the match 1-0 and qualified for their third straight World Cup with a match to spare in African qualifying Group B.

But the Football Association of Zambia were aggrieved that the referee, Joshua Bondo from their neighbours Botswana, was not entirely fair in his handling of the match. FAZ filed a formal protest to FIFA asking them to look into the matter.

Zambia’s grouse is that their ‘goal’ was disallowed by the referee, although the goal in question was scored after one of the assistant referees had clearly flagged for offside and effectively stopped play.

However, in a letter addressed to FAZ and signed by Julien Deux of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee, FIFA dismissed the case for lacking merit, telling the Zambians to accept the result and referring them to Article 15, Paragraph 6 of the World Cup regulations.

FIFA said there was “no evidence of any infringement of the regulations by the referees”.
