Ghana vs Nigeria: We don’t want to hear any story – Pinnick warns Super Eagles


Amaju Pinnick, the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), has said that the 2022 World Cup playoff against Ghana is “very serious business”.

According to him, Nigerians “don’t want to hear any story” as it concerns the national team playing in Qatar 2022.

Pinnick vowed that everything legal and acceptable will be done for the Super Eagles to achieve victory.

At a meeting with some Members of the NFF Executive Committee and Management on Wednesday, Pinnick admitted that the World Cup playoff is “war”.

He said: “Of course, we are not the ones going into the field. But the arrangements we put in place will, to a large extent, determine the spirit with which the players will enter the pitch. All our arrangements must be flawless and without sloppiness. It is a FIFA World Cup ticket at stake, so we must give it our all.

“Whatever efforts we have been making to ensure seamless movement to and fro, as well as accommodation of our contingent at major matches, must be doubled for the match in Kumasi. Nigerians don’t want to hear any story; they only want to see the World Cup ticket.”

The NFF supremo made the statements while chairing a meeting that also included NFF Vice Presidents Seyi Akinwunmi and Shehu Dikko; Dr Mohammed Sanusi (General Secretary); Executive Committee members Ibrahim Musa Gusau, Felix Anyansi-Agwu and Ahmed Yusuf; Charity Kadiri (Director of Finance and Administration); Ademola Olajire (Director of Media and Communications) and; Emmanuel Ayanbunmi (Chief Protocol Officer).
