Nigeria Football Federation first vice president Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi has disclosed that the Federation will wait for the reports of the Super Eagles Team B technical crew reports on why the team failed to reach CHAN 2020.
The Imama Amakapabo boys were dumped out of the race for next year’s CHAN to be hosted by Cameroon following their 3-4 agreegate defeat to Togo in the qualifiers.
While speaking after the disappointing 2-0 win second leg win in Agege Stadium which wasn’t enough to guaranteed qualifications, the Nigeria football governing body first vice president said, he’s not willing to speak on the future of the team’s technical crew immidiately after the setback.
“When you interview somebody immediately after a loss, he may say things that he shouldn’t. He may say things out of anger, out of being very upset and I’m not that kind of person,” Akinwunmi said.
“I would like to hold my view, and like the technical committee to brief us and we take it from there, otherwise, I would say things that I shouldn’t say. These things happen but it’s unfortunate.”
Nigeria will be missing from the tournament for the third time after missing Cote d’Ivoire 2009 and Sudan 2011.
