Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has thrown out a protest which was lodged by The Zambia Football Federation over the disallowed goal scored by Augustine Mulenga during the World Cup qualifying match against Nigeria in Uyo on October 7 90minutesgoal.com reports.

You will recall that 90minutesgoal.com first broke the news about a plan by Zambia to lodge a protest to FIFA, which the the president of Zambia Football Association, Andrew Kamanga denied ever harboring such plans.

However 90minutesgoal can reveal that the Zambian FA still summited their complaints to FIFA stating that referee Joshua Bondo from Botswana should have allowed Augustine Mulenga's 29th minute goal.

But FIFA in a swift reply which was addressed to the Zambia Football Federation and signed by the Deputy Secretary to Fifa's Disciplinary Committee Julien Deux, FIFA threw out the case for lack of merit and technical basis.

FIFA also added that Zambia should accept the result, saying there was no evidence of any infringement of the regulations by the referees” while it also referred them (Zambian FA) to Article 15, Paragraph 6 of the World Cup regulations.

Nigeria qualified for her sixth World Cup appearance by defeating Zambia 1-0 courtesy of an Alex Iwobi goal.

Thus, Zambia filed a protest? I wonder what they were seeking.

Seeking, at best a drawn game and minimum, a replay.

Zambia not only denied that they where protesting to FIFA they also said they wouldn't, their methods show cowardice,they lost home and away to Nigeria and so far are the only team in the group to do so!
