The Nigerian Senate has said that it will investigate the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The Senior National team lost the ticket to their West African arch-rivals, the Black Stars of Ghana, after playing a 1-1 draw in the return leg of the playoff in Abuja. 

Black Stars qualified ahead of Nigeria with the FIFA away goal rule having held the Super Eagles to a goalless draw in the first leg at Kumasi in Ghana.

The red chamber has directed its Committee on Sports and Youth Development to invite the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, as well as those involved in maintaining the stadium to ascertain the extent of damage to the stadium.
