Reps sure Eagles will thrash Chipolopolo to pick 2018 World Cup ticket


Super Eagles

Members, House of Representatives Committee on Sports have expressed confidence that the Super Eagles will beat the Chipolopolo in the crucial FIFA World Cup qualifier next month.

Danburam Abubakar, a member of the House Committee on Sports, said on Tuesday at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) secretariat that the Eagles need not lose sleep over the Zambian national team for the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup finals.

“Our players have learnt their bitter lesson against South Africa and everyone saw what the Eagles did to the Indomitable Lions of Cameroun. We are going to repeat same feat against Zambia,” he said.


Outside football, Abubakar expressed concern over the crisis dogging the Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF), which he said would be resolved by bringing the warring factions to a round table.

While reacting to the crisis rocking the NBBF board, Abubakar said the Committee would invite both factions involved in order to resolve the imbroglio before the November 30 deadline given by FIBA for the matter to be resolved.

“One of the motions to be tabled before the House would be that of the
Basketball federation.

“We have decided to invite those involved in the crisis after our recess and bring them to the round table and our findings will be forwarded to the House during plenary session, where the matter will be discussed with the aim of resolving the whole issue,” he explained.

“It will not do us any good if we fold our arms and watch members of a sporting federation fight dirty, and an international organisation would come and mediate in the issue we are supposed to resolve amicably,” he added.
