Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president and FIFA Council member, Amaju Pinnick has disclosed that he has found it difficult to sleep after the Super Eagles loss to the Central Africa Republic (CAR) in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The three time African champions were favorites for the three points, but they failed to perform, and suffered a shocking defeat at home to Central African Republic on Thursday.
The defeat was Nigeria’s first loss at home in a World Cup qualifier in 40 years.
Addressing the Super Eagles players, a disappointed Pinnick reminded the players that football is the only thing uniting Nigeria at the moment, and that the players should understand the seriousness of the second leg fixture in Douala.
He revealed he and the NFF team haven't slept since the loss to CAR, a team ranked 124 by FIFA, because of the disgraceful nature of the game.
