Super Eagles 2022 World Cup Failure Lowest Moment Of My Life – Pinnick
Former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mr Amaju Pinnick
The former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has described the Super Eagles’ failure to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as the lowest moment of his life.
The Black Stars of Ghana got the better of Nigeria, playing 1-1 in Abuja after a goalless draw in Kumasi to book a place in the competition.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Channels Television in Qatar, Pinnick who was still in charge of the NFF when Ghana knocked out Nigeria said he felt very bad about the result.
“Quite at the beginning I felt very humbled, I felt very bad because it’s not just about me or the country, a lot of people were concerned that Nigeria was not there.
From the FIFA president to the CAF president, most of my colleagues in the council were asking where are the Super Eagles?
“But of course, you also understand that it is football. It can tilt towards any direction, but trust me that moment in March was my lowest moment since I was born,” Pinnick said.
