New FIFA rule might Force Nigeria to pay Huge Sum for Moses, Iwobi and Ola Aina.

Nigeria might be forced to pay England for Victor Moses and other Super Eagles players if amended FIFA law sees the light of the day. The new law offers some sort of compensation to countries who lose players that have represented them at junior levels to other nations.

Victor Moses, Ola Aina and Alex Iwobi have represented England at youth competitions . Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) is currently looking into several options in their bid to effect changes to the rules guiding players’ nationality switch after representing another country at junior level.

Head of FIFA stakeholders committee, Victor Montagliani, confirmed they are looking into the rule, which currently forbids players who have played a competitive international for one team from switching to another national side even when they hold dual nationality.
