Crowd disturbances mar as Ghana progress to 2022 World Cup

Must Read

Nigerian fans acted with anger and unrestrained frustration as violence overshadowed the Super Eagles’ World Cup exit.

Local spectators peppered both the Ghana fans, some 100 or so, and the Black Stars players with water bottles – forcing the latter to cower and cover their heads as they battled their way down the tunnel following a mass pitch invasion.

The ugly scenes – with police hitting out at fans with batons – were allowed to continue by local security for around five minutes or so, and were only briefly interrupted when tear gas was thrown on to the pitch.

By that stage, a dugout had been overturned and smashed up as the unwanted-but-familiar side of football violence reared its ugly head.

Ghanaian supporters making their way from the stadium expressed their disbelief and dismay at their treatment, while football’s world governing body FIFA will take a dim view of scenes which require considerable explaining from both Nigerian security and football officials.
