The General Secretary of the Nigerian Football Federation who spoke to www.footballlive.ng via chat, urged the Flying Eagles of Nigeria to forget about yesterday’s loss and get ready for the next match against Ukraine.
“Football is all about wins, losses and draws. They lost yesterday, they should be able to redeem themselves by qualifying to the next round of the competition.
The most important thing is for them to qualify for the next phase, I believe the technical crew should learn from their mistakes of the last match. It’s normal in football to lose matches, in football its also normal to redeem yourself which is what I expect from this team in question.”
According to NFF General Secretary, “we have given them the necessary support and tools needed to excel, it is now left for the technical crew and the players to be worthy representatives of the country.”
The astute administrator concluded by saying, Nigerians should keep praying for the team, for them to get better.
