AFCON

NFF cannot manage the Super Eagles, CAR defeat exposes incompetence

Nigerian fans were left disappointed, after the super eagles lost their world cup qualifying game against Central African Republic (CAR). The eagles did not only lose the home tie, they did not show any commitment.

However, this is not the first time the team disappointed many Nigerians. Recall that the team squandered a 4 nil lead to settle for a draw against Sierra Leone, during the AFCON qualifiers. The NFF president Amaju Pinnick, gave a reaction on both occassions.

For example after the disappointing 1-0 loss to CAR, on Saturday, Pinnick released a statement saying “This result has been a huge shock, especially after the NFF provided everything necessary to make the team comfortable and focused on the task at hand, even going the extra mile in a number of areas."

Although the NFF President gave his word that the team would improve, his reaction is not enough. This is because teams like Sierra Leone and CAR should not be getting results against the super eagles.

The reaction could be described as a show of incompetence because the team did not mount any meaningful attack on the CAR defense, despite parading a host of stars. And the result is too big to be covered up by mere words. The NFF need to show it's seriouseness by it's actions.
