Pinnick, Eguavoen hit UK ahead of crunch Ghana clash

NFF Supremo meets with Super Eagles stars ahead of World Cup Qualifier

NFF President Amaju Pinnick was in the United Kingdom alongside Super Eagles Head Coach Austin Eguavoen and his newly-appointed assistant Emmanuel Amuneke to meet with a number of Super Eagles stars.

The NFF president made the trip with the intent to hold talks with the players to ensure they remain on the same page with the federation ahead of next month’s FIFA World Cup Qualifiers against Ghana.

This trip came after Pinnick met with veteran striker Odion Ighalo in Abu Dhabi during the FIFA Club World Cup, and the striker reiterated his unwavering desire to represent the Super Eagles if he received a call-up in March.

Pinnick met freshly cleared Leicester City winger Ademola Lookman, Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfred Ndidi in Leicester, and Watford quartet of Samuel Kalu, Oghenekaro Etebo, William Troost-Ekong and Emmanuel Dennis.

In a statement released by Pinnick, the Minister for Sports, Mr Sunday Dare had also coordinated a zoom call with 30 Super Eagles players to clarify the stance of the federation on World Cup qualification.

The Super Eagles will take on Ghana’s Black Stars over two legs in March for a place in November’s FIFA World Cup finals.
