By Nnamdi Ezekute, in Russia:
The Nigeria Football Federation has expressed its concern over the activities of some Super Eagles players in the Social Media during the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, and directed the team’s officials at their base camp in Essentuki to address the anomaly for better focus on the hurdles ahead, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Some players were trolled on the Social Media after Nigeria lost 2-0 to Croatia last Saturday and consequently got enmeshed in nasty rants with the fans. And the NFF chieftains are not amused.
“Personally, I don’t think that our players should react to people on Social Media,” Seyi Akinwunmi, the first Vice-versa) President of the Federation told journalists in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.
“To the best of my knowledge, the issue has been addressed by those with the team in Essentuki (team base camp) and there’s no issue about that anymore.”
