NFF President, Amaju Pinnick has come out to say that Super Eagles defeated Cape Verde because they have the attitude of champions. He recently hailed Gernot Rohr’s team for their fighting spirit and dedication in the game.
According to him, even if the pitch was not the best and the weather was not ideal, Super Eagles remained focus on the bigger picture and victory.
He added that even if the country is yet to qualify from the group, Nigeria is definitely in a good place.
His words, “That was what I call fighting performance. That is the universally acknowledged ‘Nigerian spirit’. That is the attitude of champions.”
“The pitch was not the best; the weather was not ideal, but they remained focused on the big picture and eked a win that guaranteed all the points. Six maximum points from two matches are something to celebrate.”
“Against Liberia in Lagos, they played on a wet pitch because it rained and still got the job done. Against Cape Verde, they were a goal down on an artificial turf they would rather not play on, yet they took to the task with the mentality of winners and left with the spoils.”
