Following the disbanding of the technical crew of the Super Eagles, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has mandated its Technical and Development Sub-Committee to make recommendations to the Executive Committee on coaching crews for the Super Eagles, CHAN team, U20 Boys (Flying Eagles) and U17 Boys (Golden Eaglets) within five days ahead of upcoming assignments.
The NFF gave the directive in a communique issued after the executive committee meeting held in Abuja on Tuesday to deliberate on important issues affecting Nigeria Football.
According to the communique, a unique motivational strategy was put in place to spur the coaches and the players, such as offering the technical crew a two-and-half-year contract.
The standard agreement NFF had in place with the Super Eagles that they will share 35% of the qualifying bonus Nigeria will earn by participating in the Qatar 2022 World Cup was also emphasized.
After exhaustive deliberations, introspection and admission that the outpouring of emotions by fans and stakeholders over the FIFA World Cup miss was legitimate, the Executive Committee urged caution and patience and assured that in tandem with the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, decisive steps will be taken in the next few days to reposition Nigeria Football in several areas, including the National Teams.
The Committee however hailed the Super Falcons for its qualification for the 12th edition of the Women Africa Cup of Nations taking place in Morocco in the month of July, and promised to provide the team ample support for adequate preparation for the Championship, aware that the event also serves as qualifying tournament for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup finals.
It will be recalled the Super Falcons’ contingent departed Nigeria on Tuesday night for Canada for a two-match tour with that country’s Women’s National Team, and will camp in Morocco for the African Championship.
The Executive Committee also commended the U20 Women National Team, Falconets, for its qualification for this year’s FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup taking place in Costa Rica in the month of August, and charged the U17 girls, Flamingos to put in the hard work necessary to win a ticket to this year’s FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup taking place in India in the month of October.
