The Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick, has confirmed that the federation is planning to have a physical meeting with Super Eagles players in the United Kingdom.
Pinnick stated that the meeting is part of preparations to get the players ready for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Playoffs against Ghana in March.
The country’s travelling delegation will be led by the Sports Minister Sunday Dare, and there will also be a virtual meeting for players who are not based in the UK.
Pinnick wrote on Twitter, “We will be leading a delegation to the United Kingdom soon, led by the Honourable Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, to hold meetings with our players.
“I’m so happy the Honourable Minister is leading this delegation himself, highlighting how important the World Cup is to us and our team.
“We are also hoping to have a zoom call with all of our players as well. The essence is to ensure that issues any player might have are thrashed out so that we all have the same focus: qualifying for the World Cup.”
Nigeria will lock horns with Ghana in the 2020 World Cup Playoffs. The first leg of the encounter will go down on March 23 in Ghana, while the second leg will be played at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja on March 27.
