There will be no British referee at the World Cup this summer for the first time since 1938. There are also no British officials among the 63 assistant referees selected, while video assistant referees will be chosen from the pool of officials at the tournament.

This is a big blow and disgrace to Nigeria as a whole for being excluded from the officiating of World Cup Tournament. Why did Nigeria even qualify for the tournament.
