The NFF manage at least six age grade teams; both boys and girls, and a beach soccer team.
The communiqué added, “The committee pledged to do all that is necessary to ensure adequate preparations of the Super Eagles to set a new record of performance for an African country at the World Cup in Russia in 2018, to the glory of Nigerian and African football.
“The board resolved to ensure that negotiations with the players to ensure that World Cup bonuses are firmly concluded and an agreement signed before the end of this year, for the sake of stable preparations and credible participation at the World Cup without any distractions.”
The board approved the recommendation of the Technical and Development Committee for the appointment of Randy Waldrum as manager of the Super Falcons.
