So wet in happened to the MRI machine in this case? :rotf:

As many of us have been saying, the MRI program is ineffective and just something for FIFA to show that they're doing something about age cheating. The reality is that they have no answers.

MRI can disqualify a legitimate U17 talent and pass an old man.

The U17 should be scrapped or restricted only to players who can produce an authentic birth cert that can be verified. If you don't have a birth cert then by default you should be automatically disqualified from an age-restricted competition anyway as your age cannot be verified.

I agree with your point on birth certificate, everyone Under 17 will be born this century, and there is no excuse anywhere not to produce birth certificate for any child born from 2002 onwards. The excuse of not having birth certificate facilities is now weak

They have birth certificates...

The certificates are however not considered reliable (frankly no Nigerian certificate is, and thus many embassies have to authenticate Nigerian certificates before accepting them) - and that's the systemic problem that needs to be fixed!

You're saying here that embassies have to authenticate Nigerian certificates. Well, there is nothing stopping NFF doing the same. We may even find it easier (and cheaper) to do as we understand our system and terrain better than foreign embassies.

The price we're paying now in Africa for not wanting to do the right thing is to be saddled with a fraudulent MRI system that can disqualify our legitimate young prospects and allow in cheats like these two players who cheated us out of a final.

Validating Primary school records is a start but winning trumps all that and the culture of cheating is hard to stop when poverty is rife and the path to football riches is tempting.
