The president of Nigeria has suspended the national soccer team from international competition for two years.
The decision made by President Goodluck Jonathan was announced after the team failed to win a single game in the World Cup. The announcement also followed corruption allegations which surrounded the team in the run-up to the competition in South Africa. A presidential spokesman says all funding of the squad will be investigated. Nigeria left the World Cup with just one point, thanks to a 2-2 draw with South Korea.
