image for Nigeria out of World Cup
Ivory tusks are popular forms of bribery

In emerging news, the Nigerian football team, playing at the 19th FIFA World Cup in South Afria, have been disqualified from the tournament because their captain tried to bribe FIFA officials in an endeavour to influence the results of their group games.

Afila Moiutu, a 10 game veteran of World Cup clashes, has been caught handing over ivory tusks, embroidered leather goods, leopard skin dresses and rhino horns among other presents to FIFA delegates from all over the world. One FIFA delegate was "flabbergasted" by his behaviour. "He could've given me something more appealing, like a cheque for $20,000.00" said the delegate who remained nameless and unidentifiable as he was disguised as a woman.

The Nigerians have taken back the bribes and are now working on better ways to influence the results of their future rounds. "May be prostitutes" said one player.

In other World Cup news, Switzerland's team have tested positive to the drug "ice" and are now in melt down.
