Sunday Mba sees red in France

Sunday Mba

Super Eagles and Bastia midfielder, Sunday Mba, was red carded while in action for his French club, CA Bastia, in a National League game on Saturday.

Mba got a red card in the 1-1 draw with Chambly. He was given the marching order by the referee in the 73rd minute of the encounter when his team was down by a lone goal, making it his second red card since he joined CA Bastia last season.

Mba scored four goals in 16 games last season, but is yet to score in the seven-week-old National League, which is the French third division.

Mba’s stock as a footballer has dwindled since he scored the winning goal for Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations final against Burkina Faso.

An ownership tussle first ensued between Warri Wolves and Rangers FC , before he finally moved to Bastia, then in the French second division.

Last season, he relegated with the club to the National league.

He has also fallen out of favour with the Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi. He was dropped from the World Cup squad in Brazil and was not invited for the recently played 2015 Cup of Nations qualifiers.
