In the 1990s there was a youth football team that went to a tournament in Belgium. They were knocked out in round 1.

Coming home, they bought a trophy at the airport, and claimed they won, and Nigerians partied.

This is worse, because back then, people couldn't verify...


This is the first time I have heard this story. What team was this and what tournament does any one know.

Sounds like something Arsenal would do.

It’s ignorance on his part. It’s playing to the gallery.

never heard of this. We shouldn't be too quick to give ourselves a bad name. If it did happen, it doesn't mean it's the norm

It's true, the team was from/or named Obrubra. They were sponsored to a tournament in Europe by their state government. They did not win the tournament and decided to buy a trophy and presented it to the State government as evidence that they won.
It was the days before the internet and it was a journalist through agency reports that discovered the ruse.

If I remember correctly, they got to the tournament late and were not allowed to participate.
In view of the huge expenditure that it cost the State government, they decided to buy a trophy and present it to the State Governor as the winning trophy.
They were scared of the repercussions of wasting government funds.

I was hoping to draw you out. How many other teams have left the shores of NIgeria, came back with nothing or something without having to a trophy at the airport?

Your problem is you keep using "we", "our", "us" and making suggestion but your sorry f3ck1ng arse is stuck abroad somewhere. Why don't you go and make a difference?

There was a guy who ran a marathon. On the way he slipped into the crowd and close to the end resurfaced and rejoin the race close to the leaders. His story is not the story of marathon or his country is it? If every time someone did something wrong and it become the story of a people then I have an issue with that.

Your problem is you don't ask the people who do wrong to accept responsibility for their action. You use their wrong to tarnish others.

I don't have to group everyone in the same boat the way you do to show I'm against wrong doing.

Please get your * lips off my knob and stop following me about on the internet. Make your point without reference to me, biko

You seem upset. Calm down bro...

Were you also looking to draw me out 10yrs ago when u were similarly minimizing cheating by the U-17 team?

Ur problem here is ur lack of intelligence. There's a common theme between age issue and the fake trophy issue- cheating and winning by any means possible.

Nigeria has a pattern of cheating at the youth level, and the history of our youth football is rife with it. That is in part our story.

We should not wish it away or seek to minimize or justify it as you have been shown to do in the last decade on this site...

Stop condoning cheating! It makes u an enabler....

Of course I'm upset and you're being an effing angel*. You keep going on about I condon cheating. It seems to have a different opinion from you lil providing proof, is condoning age cheats.

Please. I don't subscribe to accusation without proof and never will. You can make all the noise you want. You're a decking cvnt in my book because you think you know more than everyone else and if they don't agree with you or express a different opinion then they are condoning chssting.
Meanwhile you cannot show a single post of mine, in all my 10 years or more on this site, where I agree with age cheats.

It did happen, even though i cannot remember the full details. It was one of those YSFON competitions. Back in the 70s and 80s the nation used to participate in these competitions like crazy. Football and handball teams fly out for these competitions on a yearly basis, until corruption reared its ugly head as usual.

This one was a big scandal which hit the news back then...I am knocking my head, the details are flashing around because i happen to know one or two names involved. Where is megapro when you need him?

I watched one of those youth tournaments that YSFON participated in, in Sweden back then. This team had Fatai Atere or Victor Igbinoba in it, I think....

I am still embarrassed just remembering it. We are serial cheats...
