🇳🇬 Nigeria ⚽ Burkina Faso🇧🇫 match cancelled

  |   Football / Nigeria News / ISL

Burkina Faso were forced to pull out of Monday's international friendly after seven of their squad were not cleared to travel to the United Kingdom.

A statement from NFF official Chris Green read: "Seven players in the Burkinabe contingent failed to secure entry visas into the United Kingdom.

The NFF went on to explain how the failure to fulfil the match came about, with the British embassy in Morocco – where Burkina Faso played the Atlas Lions on Friday – not putting their visa applications through in time for their planned flight to London. As a result, the Burkinabe Football Federation informed match organisers Eurodata that they would not be able to play.
