NFF Scribe Charges Flying Eagles To Lift World Cup
….Team Begins Long Journey To New Zealand
General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Dr. Mohammed Sanusi has enjoined the Flying Eagles to live up to expectations by lifting the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
The NFF’s head of administration watched the Flying Eagles’ last training session in Nurnberg, Germany, yesterday morning and after which he addressed the team.
“We pray that God will uplift you. You were the first team to give me a trophy, when I assumed office as General Secretary; that was the African Youth Championship. It was three days after I got into office,” Sanusi said.
“I now pray that you give me the World Cup. “Nothing is impossible with prayers and determination. Hard work combined with prayers will make the impossible possible.”
He again pledged the total support of the NFF to the team. “You will not lack anything in New Zealand and I believe you will deliver,” he assured.
The General Secretary also commended the coaches and backroom staff for doing well thus far, saying the sky will be just their stepping stone.
