I have confidence in this team – NFF Boss to Super Eagles

President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick is full of confidence that the Super Eagles will scale through South Africa hurdle on Wednesday.

The Super Eagles will file out against the Bafana Bafana in the quarter-final of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday.

Pinnick, who is also the chairman of the AFCON 2019 Local Organising Committee, visited the team on Tuesday and reminded the 2013 champions the importance of winning a football match.

“I have confidence in this team and what you are capable of doing. I am just here to re-emphasize the fact that tomorrow’s game is very, very important. Football is the greatest known unifying factor among our peoples across different mental and physical boundaries, and victory will help to further solidify our unity.

“Anytime you are playing and winning, our country is united and people forget all their differences in various forms and celebrate together. I want you to take your chances and minimize individual errors at the back and in the midfield.”

Pinnick, who is also the 1st Vice President of CAF, then presented the sum of $75,000 promised the team by NFF’s Official Optimum Partner, AITEO Group, for their three goals against Cameroon in Saturday’s Round of 16 in Alexandria, while assuring them that the $20,000 per player promise made by Captain Hosea Wells Okunbo would be redeemed before Wednesday’s match.
