The President, Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Melvin Pinnick, has expressed the hope that Nigeria’s Super Eagles will one day win the FIFA World Cup
According to NAN, Pinnick expressed the hope on Friday in Uyo after playing in the maiden novelty match between SWAN Selected team and Akwa Ibom Sports Arena team.
The NFF president said he decided to honour the invitation to play in the match, because, if he failed to do so, it could be taken to mean, he got hamstring injury or simply refused to participate.
Pinnick, who played in the colours of SWAN Selected side throughout the second half of the match, described sports journalists as critical to football reportage in Nigeria.
“We believe in working together. It has been an amazing support from sports journalists. One day we will win the World Cup,” he said.
