Nigeria 3-1 North Korea: Super Eagles Win Marred By Fan Stampede

With both teams now in South Africa, a friendly was organised at the Makhulong Stadium in Thembisa. Nigeria is a popular team in Africa with a few World Cup appearances under their belt, while the North Koreans are participating in their second tournament.

Ahead of the match thousands of fans stampeded the gates outside the stadium, leaving several people injured. Several fans fell as others wearing Nigeria shirts ran on in an attempt to get inside the 10,000-seater stadium, which will play no part in staging the actual tournament.

The story is too old to be commented.
