FIFA and CAF will investigate the Zambian fans during the World Cup qualifier against Nigeria.
The two soccer governing bodies have launched an investigation into the behaviour of the Chipolopolo fans after photographs showed the Zambian supporters displaying a banner written, ‘H.E E.C LUNGU GOD BLESS YOU’ in the stands at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.
This was in support of Zambian president, Edgar Lungu who has become unpopular with a section of the Zambian population.
FIFA does not allow political messages during football matches, which means Zambia could face censure.
The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president, Andrew Kamanga, has, meanwhile told media in his country, that the association will not appeal the disallowed goal due to inadequate facts to launch the case.
He said FAZ finds itself in a difficult position as FIFA deemed a referee’s decision as final unless there is evidence suggesting the decision was influenced.
