FIFA have rebuffed the Zambia Football Association's request for a review of the officiating during their national team's away World Cup qualifier against Nigeria played on October 7 2017.

Zambia, who lost the game 1-0 to bow out of the qualifying race for the Russia World Cup, appealed to FIFA to review the performance of Botswanan referee Joshua Bondo in the game which took place in Uyo.

Musa was in Kano to formally open his petrol station, one of a growing number of business...

Shehu Abdullahi: From World Cup snub to Nigeria stalwart

While Nigeria's Alex Iwobi stole the headlines as the Super Eagles clinched their place at the World Cup with a 1-0 victory over Zambia on Saturday, Abdullahi Shehu also deserves immense credit for establishing himself as a key figure in Gernot Rohr's side.

The Anorthosis Famagusta utility man made the CAF Best XI of Matchday 5 of World Cup qualifying, and has become accepted as the solution to one of Nigeria's long-term problems - the right-back spot.

However, the road to stardom hasn't been smooth...
