Ex- international Dimeji Lawal has put the blame of the Super Eagles’ low performance in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers squarely on in-fighting in the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, saying that is expected of a house in disarray and without a head.
Speaking to Sports Vanguard on telephone, the former Canada’87 FIFA U-17 World Cup veteran said when the head is rusty, how do you blame the technical crew and players for just not measuring up? It’s clear there is no one to chart a part of progress, so the coaches and players ave no one to give them ears. It is therefore affecting them off the pitch and on the pitch.”
Dimeji said Nigeria can only salvage the campaign if the warring parties quickly mend fences and work together for the country. “Yes result is not good right now but I still want to absolve our players and technical crew of blame. This was never a time to rake up crises, on the brink of very crucial qualifiers. Those involved owe us the responsibility to sit up and return football back of course.
