“I sincerely want to appreciate all of you. The technical crew, players and the support staff. You have made us proud in the past and I want to urge you to continue with same zeal and vigour.

“You have demonstrated professionalism and an understanding of what it means to don the green and white jersey of Nigeria. We will be rooting for you to get this qualifying campaign off to a good start and then follow things up with successes in your subsequent matches. We want to be in Qatar 2022 as a participating nation not spectators. I trust you to make it happen for Nigeria and Nigerians.”

The Sports Minister also heaped encomiums on the Nigeria Football Federation for their efforts at self funding and seeking private sector support for their programmes.

“Government cannot do it alone. We need collaborations and partnerships with the private sector. These are the resources needed to keep our players and coaches comfortable so they can focus on getting us good results on the pitch.The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development will make the environment conducive for the Nigeria Football Federation to make this sort of breakthrough and progress,” Dare said.

    I WILL LIKE TO ADVICE GERNOT ROHR ON SUBSTITUTION
    MOST TIMES, WHAT MAKES NIGERIA FANS TO BE FRANK WITH GERNOT ROHR TECHNICAL COMPETENCE IS INABILITY TO MAKE A QUICK SUBSTITUTION IN A MATCH, WHILE THERE IS A LOT OF PLAYERS ON BENCH.
    ***DURING THIS PERIOD OF COVID-19, PLEASE GERNOT ROHR, TRY TO UTILISED ATLEAST 5 SUBSTITUTIONS IN THIS QUALIFIERS.
    SENEGAL, ALGERIA DID THAT.
    **UP SUPER EAGLE
    **UP NIGERIA

     
  • ### MY ADVICE FOR JOE YOBO AS ASS. COACH
    YOBO should go and watch AFCON 2000 and see how KESHI perform his role credibly well as a assistant coach to Bonfrere Jo on d field of play.
    YOBO, you too are super star & well respected person as a former player. You can emulate KESHI so that you can have a chance to become future super eagle coach.

      You cannot give what u don’t have. It’s as simple as that. He’s just a waste of precious space there. Let him go and work on himself.

    I very much doubt if this match can be played on a soggy pitch resulting from 4 days persistent downpour in Lagos
