The President, Nigeria Football Federation, Aminu Maigari, has said that the body was conceiving a strategy that would ensure befitting outings for national teams in 2014.
Maigari told the News Agency of Nigeria on telephone that the strategy was aimed at ensuring that national teams remained consistent and progressive with their performances.
He said that the body had directed the Super Eagles’ technical crew to submit its action plan for 2014.
“There is no doubt that this has been a remarkable year for us, but we do not want it to end just there. It must be continuous.
“We have developed a short, medium and long term plan in order to achieve our objectives, not only for the Super Eagles but for all our national teams,” Maigari said.
He said that the NFF was doing its best to ensure that Super Eagles play some ‘Grade A’ friendly matches before the 2014 World Cup.
“We have advanced in many ways with our teams, and we will do well as a body to take the country’s football to its pinnacle in the nearest future.
“We are not relenting because this dream is not just ours but the collective desire of Nigerians as stakeholders who expect the best from our football teams.
“I must express my deep appreciation to Nigerians and, of course, the media for the role they played in shaping our thoughts positively at critical moments.
“We must collectively work hand-in-hand again in 2014,” the NFA president said.
Maigari said that Nigeria’s victories in 2013 gave the federation an insight into how it could successfully execute its plans for 2014.
