The FCT Football Association (FA) Chairman, Alhaji Musa Talle, has described the 79-0 score-line between Plateau United Feeders and Akurba FC of Nasarawa as a disgrace to Nigerian football.
He also tagged the game between Police Machine FC of Adamawa and Babayaro FC of Gombe that recorded another outrageous 67 goals in favour of the home team as corruption of the highest order.
Talle said that Nigerian football has entered into the Guinness Book of Records in which a single match of 90 minutes produced such scandalous result.
“This is a shame and disgrace as well as set back to the development of Nigerian football. I have never heard of it anywhere in the world that in a single match, 79 goals were scored. In fact, any institution or official found culpable should face the wrath of the law,” Talle said.
National Mirror gathered from a reliable source yesterday that there was a great protest in Jos, where the players and officials of Plateau United Feeder accused the centre referee of not recording all the goals they allegedly scored during the game, saying they scored 103 goals as against 79 recorded.
