NFF commiserates with CBF

The Nigeria Football Federation has sent a letter of condolence to its Brazilian counterpart, the Confederacao Brasileira de Football (CBF), (Brazilian Football Federation) over Monday’s plane crash in Colombia that killed players, official and supporters of the country’s club, Chapecoense, as well as a number of journalists.

In the letter, NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi lamented the tragedy that has cut down the lives of dozens of young and vibrant sportsmen in their prime.

“Indeed, the NFF and the Nigerian Football family have been in deep grief since the incident, which reportedly led to the death of several players, technical officials and backroom staff of the Brazilian elite League club, as well as journalists and supporters of the club.

““We sincerely pray that God Almighty will grant the departed souls eternal rest and also grant the Chapecoense FC, the families and other loved ones of the victims and the CBF the fortitude to bear the big loss.”
