Sports minister Solomon Dalung is to hold a meeting with the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation on Tuesday.
The Media Adviser to the Minister Nneka Anibeze said in a statement on Sunday the meeting would hold in the minister’s conference room, Anibeze said Dalung decided to invite the NFF officials following the Super Eagles’ 2-0 loss to Bafana Bafana in Uyo on Saturday. Meanwhile, the minister has called for support for the Eagles in their bid to qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and 2018 World Cup.
“We need to sit with the technical committee to find out the immediate and remote causes of this setback (Nigeria’s defeat by South Africa),” Dalung was quoted in the statement as saying. “We have very young talented players in the Eagles and we trust that with more hard work and determination, this result can be reversed when we go to South Africa.”
