Pinnick however was happy the country escape the hammer of FIFA in the crisis that will be long remembered by Nigeria football lovers.

“Imagine if we had been banned, the Super Eagles who have qualified for the Nations cup in 2019 would have been denied that, the Super Falcons who have clinched their 9th African Women’s Nations cup and have a ticket to the world cup in France, our Beach Eagles who have qualified for the World cup in Paraguay, all these would not have been possible,” he submitted

The former Delta FA boss added that the country‘s two senior National teams, the Super Eagles and Super Falcons are very important to the federation, even the Eagles are a big brand but the Falcons are also getting their fair share .

“There were people who approached the Federation to say we want to appreciate the girls and I said no don’t give to the Federation, I will give you their account numbers and you credit them directly, let them feel that appreciation coming directly from Nigerians,” he said.
