NFF apologise for Super Eagles’ failure to qualify for Qatar 2022

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has tendered an unreserved apology to the federal government and football fans after the Super Eagles failed to qualify for this year’s World Cup in Qatar.

Nigeria played out a 1-1 draw with Ghana on Tuesday in Abuja, missing out on the away goal rule.

NFF General Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sanusi, also lamented the team’s failure to get a World Cup ticket, despite the best efforts of the football house and Sports Ministry.

“There was nothing the team needed that was lacking. The Government provided necessary support; the NFF put all logistics in place with the active support of the Sports Ministry and; Nigerians turned out en masse to support the team. The truth is that we left nothing to chance.

“It is sad that things turned out the way they did.

“Sport is about winning and losing. Nobody wants to lose but sometimes it happens that way. We are quite sad that despite playing a draw in Kumasi, the Super Eagles could not win here in Abuja.

“We apologise unreservedly to the Government and people of Nigeria for this non-qualification,” Sanusi said.
