FIFA WORLD CUP…..A.U Mustapha commends Super Eagles’ performances
The President of CAF Appeal Board, Abdulhakeem Usman Mustapha (SAN) has praised the endeavour of the Super Eagles at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, saying though Nigerians expected a better outing, the players did give their all in the circumstances.
Speaking on Wednesday morning, the Senior Advocate cautioned analysts who have been condemning the team, insisting that the players put up impressive performances against Iceland and Argentina and possess the capacity to keep improving with an eye on future glory.
He said: “The FIFA World Cup is the highest level of the sport, and we must realise that it is no piece of cake. Our boys gave their very best in the circumstances. They were under par in their first match and that is understandable because it was the first match. We saw the improved performances in their last two matches.
“I want to give kudos to the NFF Board led by Mr. Amaju Pinnick. They gave the team everything it required to succeed, in terms of additional quality technical staff, high quality preparation n terms of friendlies and camping sites and adequate financing. The Board and the technical team deserve our commendation.”
