FIFA fines Super Eagles $30,000 for invading pitch after winning Cameroon

Nigeria has been fined more than $30,000 (£22,600) by Fifa and issued with a warning after Super Eagles fans invaded the pitch when they beat Cameroon 4-0 on 1 September.

This was the largest fine handed down to eight African nations by the global football body for various offences committed during September's 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

DR Congo were also given a warning and fined $20,000 for incidents during their match against Tunisia on 5 September.

Fifa ruled that there had been "improper conduct among spectators - throwing objects [bottles] and letting off incendiary devices" at the match, which ended 2-2, in Kinshasa.

The Congolese federation was also sanctioned for failing to fly national flags at the stadium and for not displaying a mandatory "central advertising board".
