The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has apologized to Nigerians over the failure of the home-based Eagles to qualify for 2020 CHAN after 4-3 aggregate loss to neighbouring team, Togo.
The 1st Vice President of the NFF, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi begged Nigerians not to lose hope in the home-based players while speaking to brila.net at the end of the game.
“I appreciate all our coaches and players for the effort they put in that does not mean I’m not upset. I can’t apportion blame, the NFF too must take its share, we all do. That’s what it is.”
“We are sorry. We know that many Nigerians including myself and people in management are all upset about this.
“But we've come down before and come back up. We will come back up”, he concluded.
