Super Falcons Right Back Ujoku Gets Three Match Ban
Super Falcons right full-back Ugo Njoku has been suspended for three matches and fined 641,349.27 Naira by FIFA after being found guilty of elbowing Australia striker Sam Kerr in their last match.
The substitute escaped the referee’s sanction for the action in the second half but has now been punished after a video assessment.
The Australian striker suffered a broken jaw from the incident.
In a statement issued by Fifa on this morning, it said the decision became necessary after asserting the Nigerian’s poor challenge in the game which the Super Falcons lost 2-0 on Friday.
