The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has again apologized to Nigerians for the failure of the Super Eagles to qualify for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.


This formed part of the resolutions reached at the federations executive committee meeting held yesterday in Abuja to discuss critical issues in the nations football sector.


The NFF also reacted to the invasion of the MKO Abiola Stadium in Abuja by fans who were aggrieved by Eagles defeat to the Ghanaian side, stressing that the incident had nothing to do with the death of Dr Joseph Kabungo who was appointed as the FIFA Doping Officer for the Nigeria-Ghana playoff match on Tuesday last week.


According to the football governing, Kabungo died as a result of sudden cardiac arrest as attested to by the autopsy report.


Meanwhile, the Executive Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation mandated one of the federations sub-committees to within the next five days recommend a new coaching crew for the Super Eagles.
