Nigeria football making progress by all standards – Pinnick

It is impossible to win all matches

The Nigeria Football Federation chief Amaju Pinnick has said the country football is making progress by all standards.

Pinnick while speaking in Lagos during 50th year remembrance ceremony of the late Teslim ‘Thunder’ Balogun, held at the Sheraton Hotel, Lagos said Nigeria is doing well.

The NFF boss highlighted a few success the teams have made and said the only failure was with Super Eagles not making the world cup. 

“Nigeria Football is making progress by all standards. All our junior national teams, men and women – the Eaglets, Flying Eagles, Flamingos and Falconets – have qualified for their FIFA World Cup finals. The Senior Women Team, Super Falcons, also just picked the ticket to play in the Women’s World Cup finals.

“The Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles all won WAFU Cup titles recently. These are noticeable feats that amount to some progress. The only one we fell short was the World Cup qualification. This happens in football. It is impossible to win every match.”
