President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has charged the Super Eagles to win in Sudan on Saturday.
The newly-elected FA chief, in company of Vice-President Seyi Akinwunmi and Executive Committee member Felix Anyansi Agwu, dropped by at the Abuja National Stadium venue of the team’s training sessions on Tuesday afternoon.
Pinnick said he was in tune with most of the players and declared that the game against Sudan should be the take-off point for his administration.
“The last NFF regime has been wonderful in terms of achievement and we want to continue from there,” he said. “That is why I must say the Sudan game is a must-win for us, because it’s the first competitive game under this dispensation.
“On our part we are determined to continue to support the team and soon you will see what we could do through Corporate Nigeria and the rest of the game’s supporters and sponsors.”
Eagles skipper Vincent Enyeama, who responded on behalf of the team and officials, assured that the team would not let the nation down in the course of qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations billed for Morocco.
“Mr president, no shaking,” said Enyeama. “But we must congratulate you on your election and assure Nigerians that with God all things are possible.”
