Nigeria and Super Eagles attacker, Odion Ighalo, could get further punishment over the “Thank You Jesus” shirt inscription celebration on his first goal against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon last Friday in Uyo.
World Football governing body FIFA, will in the coming days decide whether additional sanctions should be placed on Nigeria after the yellow card shown to the China based player for his goal celebration.
Referee Ghead Grisha gave Ighalo a yellow card, after the Chanchung Yatai forward lifted his shirt to reveal a “Thank You Jesus” inscription shortly after giving Nigeria the lead in their 4-0 win over Cameroon on Friday.
Ighalo confirmed the yellow card shown to him was for the inscription on his shirt, but there could be more punishment for the 28 year old when referee Grisha submits his match report.
FIFA has banned the display of political, unapproved commercials, religious or personal message in undershirts and they mostly place fines on violators.
Cases of other countries who have received series of fine for similar incidents abound but Qatar were the last nation to be fined by FIFA for a violation of the no message in undershirts law, when they warmed up for their World Cup Qualifiers clash against South Korea with T-Shirts with political undertone.
